Optimisation of water use by plants in the mediterranean

Objective

Increasing the efficiency of water use within agricultural systems is critical to ensure stability in agricultural production and food security. This measure aims to establish dialogue and communication between European and Mediterranean scientists, policy makers and other stakeholders concerned with the optimisation of water use in Mediterranean Agricultural systems. Whilst many scientific projects are ongoing in various disciplines working on aspects of water use in plants, in many Eastern and Southern Mediterranean countries water is already at the scarcity level. The holistic approach in this measure aims, to bridge the gap between research scientists working in molecular, genetic and physiological, environmental research and end users. The need for this communication is ongoing and will enable scientists and policy makers and others to make decisions on future research priorities.
