The project intends to develop a water governance model able to i) measure and monitor irrigation withdrawal from groundwater, ii) measure and monitor water salinity, iii) design a water tariff policy.
- provide to the water manager an user-friendly tool to collect and manage all the important information (water volumes withdrawn from hydrants, water quality) on the use of groundwater resources;
- contribute to the solution of technical problems related to the use (and abuse) of groundwater resources in agriculture;
- fine-tune the "governance" models of the aquifer;
- plan the use of groundwater in accordance with environmental sustainability and the needs of farmers and to identify appropriate mitigation measures with an adequate level of consensus among the various involved "stakeholders".
