Quantitative and qualitative aspects of water stress are a global problem with far-reaching economic and social implications. To mitigate water stress problems, the European Commission supports the Integrated Project (IP) AquaStress within the 6th research framework program. The project aims to deliver enhanced interdisciplinary methodologies enabling actors at different levels to mitigate water stress problems. An important objective of AquaStress is to find new insights into the pressures and drivers of water stress in different regions of the EU, and in the regional aggregation of stakeholder based decisions. An IT knowledge management system will be developed to support the planning and decision making process.
AquaStress (2005-2009) is a research project funded by the European Commission (EC). The project aims to deliver enhanced interdisciplinary methodologies enabling actors at different levels to mitigate water stress problems. Both quantitative and qualitative aspects are covered. The project is test-site and stakeholder driven, indicating that any developments are directly related to a variety of study areas and stakeholders who actively participate in the project.
