Governance tool for sustainable water resources allocation in the Mediterranean through stakeholder’s collaboration
Towards a paradigm shift in groundwater management by end-users
What is GOTHAM?
GOTHAM is a PRIMA MED-funded project which aims at developing and validating a user-driven tool that enables effective groundwater governance for the improvement of the management and preservation of this strategic resource in the Mediterranean basin. The developed tool, the GOTHAM Tool (GTool) uses an integrated methodological approach that targets optimal allocation of water resources from an environmental, social and economic perspective taking into account the stakeholders’ knowledge, their priorities and behaviour. It will provide a common framework for collaboration and engagement of the different water users (agricultural communities, municipalities and industrial users) and other relevant stakeholders such as water producers, water operators and regulators.
