EGROUNDWATER

One of the main constraints for implementing groundwater management is access to information on the water resource and on its use, and the dissemination of this information. The eGroundwater project aims to test methods to support participatory and sustainable management of groundwater based on innovative information systems.

These methods encompass the use of new tools (e.g., satelite images, drones) and the involvement of users in the collection and management of data (i.e., what is generally referred to as citizen science). One of the tested tools will be a cellphone app, which will be used by actors to provide data (for instance about groundwater levels) and to obtain data (for instance about the situation of the whole aquifer or about planted areas). Case studies are located in Morocco (Sefrou Province), Algeria (Adrar Province), Spain (Valencia Region) and Portugal (Algarve Region).
