Numerous projections forecast that the Mediterranean will be one of the planet’s regions most vulnerable to global environmental change. This phenomenon will affect water availability and as a consequence the functioning of natural ecosystems, agriculture, the quantity of water, and social and economic activities.

At CREAF we collaborate in the:

  • Design of water adaptation measures and strategies.
  • The evaluation of climate change impacts.
  • Water resources and vulnerability assessments, including social, biophysical and climatic aspects.
  • Innovation in water governance and policy.
  • Water cycle study design via satellite imagery.
  • Tools, web services, and inspection of water quality in watersheds.

Over the past few years, various emblematic projects have demonstrated the experience and quality of the services offered by CREAF in this field.
