The objective is to give to the different decision makers (Governments, Local and Regional Authorities, Basin and Sub-Basin Organizations, Operators) a tool to appreciate water demand and supplies, and their interdependencies in the finest way with every data level available.
This tool is based on an innovative calculation of water demand (for agriculture, industry, domestic uses, energy production, …) which is compared to the available resources and needs (e.g. environmental). It is based on a “bottom-up” methodology allowing a quantitative analysis of locally-based water demand and resources. The aim is to implement the STRATEAU tool on different Mediterranean areas to set up a of water governance framework.
