As climate change increases the likelihood of prolonged droughts throughout Europe, where areas will not see any precipitation for long periods of time, there will be shortages within the water supply. These shortages will result in the drying of crops, reduced soil quality, bring new pests, rodents and diseases as well as create a shortage of drinking water for farm animals such as cattle. Adaptations to droughts will need preparations, where farmers and landowners will need to consider their own possibilities such as close environment, soil characteristics, legal options and context. Therefore, the AGRIWATER project will try to help farmers and landowners start, implement, and sustainably maintain new water systems and/or other adaptation methods to droughts.
The project’s main goal is to help farmers maintain their agricultural lands by implementing innovative adaptation measures to droughts, as well as raise awareness amongst landowners about why it is necessary to care for their lands in this way. The project will run for 2 years and operate across the Belgium, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Germany, Italy and Spain. It became evident that all participating countries suffer from droughts in one way or another.
The project will create an educational platform where farmers and landowners can gain knowledge on the practical implementation of different adaptation strategies and water management systems which they can then use on their own land to better cope with droughts. The materials will cover current situations and possibilities in partner countries and best practice examples of innovative adaptation tools to drought from each partner country.
