The delegation of the ministry of Environment and agriculture of Andorra took part in the meeting, dedicated to issues within the framework of the project AGUAMOD. The event was held at the headquarters of the Higher Council for scientific research in Madrid.
The aim of the project AGUAMOD, (which includes contributions by dozens of research centers of Andorra, all of the Autonomous communities of Spain except the Canary Islands, the South-Western part of France, Portugal and the UK (Gibraltar)) is to have control over the rational use of water resources in the southern part of Western Europe. The participants tried to answer questions about improvements that could be made to the management of water resources in Europe and to optimise their use and the impact on climate change.
AGUAMOD project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The budget for projects during the period 2014-2020 is 1.6 million euros.
In addition to the Higher Council for scientific research of Spain, the project collaborates with the national centre for scientific research of France, the University of Castella – la Manxa, the University of the Basque country, the Institut Tècnic-IST Portugal, the national research Institute of science and technology of France, the University of Cadiz, the national research Institute of agriculture and veterinary medicine of Portugal and the technical University of Valencia.
