GOTHAM stands for “Governance tool for sustainable water resources allocation in the Mediterranean through stakeholder’s collaboration”. It aims at shifting the paradigm in groundwater management by engaging end-users. The project is led by Cetaqua and gathers seven partners from the Mediterranean area including private companies (GAC Group, Ingegneria Informatica), a university (Universidad de Córdoba), an international NGO (Istituto per la Cooperazione Universitaria), and public institutions (Ministry of Agriculture in Lebanon and The National Agricultural Research Center in Jordan). Together, they aim at co-creating a user-driven tool that enables effective governance for the preservation of the quantity and quality of groundwater in the Mediterranean basin. The project is funded by the European Commission under the PRIMA (Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area) programme and started on the 1st of April 2020.
