The main objective of the CLIMED project is to provide information on the foreseeable climatic changes in the Western Mediterranean. through a multiple approach which includes field hydrological databases, together with statistical models and physically based models, performing an evaluation on how fresh water resources will vary. The project address esevapotranspiration of different land uses, by measuring catchments runoff at small catchments, and performs up scaling through statistical methods directed to the analysis of extreme events, through the use of LISEM model. CLIMED has unimportant socio-economic dimension, which relates the socio-economic data with the information provided by the climate and hydrological stages, in order to produce, for the selected river catchments, an assessment of the impacts of changes on water availability. Another Clime's major goal is to build a conceptual model based on integrated management methodologies, defining guidelines to support decision-making processes and strategic paining for water resources, as wellas defining policy recommendations based on combined top-down and bottom-up approaches.
