A critical assessment of the potential for application and expected impact of promising emerging technologies for combating desertification in Pinios. Pilot applications of a number of these technologies in selected areas of the Pinios Basin.
The i-adapt project aims to provide a specific, actionable plan for combating desertification through the use of emerging technologies, piloted in the Pinios River Basin in Greece, and quantify the expected impact of this plan on Pinios.
Main activities of the project include review of existing pilot applications of technologies in Pinios with on-site visits, model development for the Pinios Basin, development of decision support tools for technology application and development of action plan and recommendations to be included in the next round of RBMP for Pinios.
i-adapt is one of the Pilot projects on Development of Prevention Activities to Halt Desertification in Europe, partly funded by DG Environment of the European Commission. The objective of the pilot projects is to support the development of concrete pilot initiatives on innovative technologies, techniques or practices in order to contribute to the exchanges of good practice and innovation at the local level for halting the desertification in Europe.
