With a growing population and increasing prosperity, the demand for energy, food and water in the Mediterranean region will increase. The aim of AWESOME is to investigate the sustainable use of natural resources in the southern Mediterranean region. To this end, a platform is being developed in cooperation with universities in Italy, Greece and Israel and a practical partner in Egypt, which makes it possible to simulate the influences of alternative WEF approaches. This should result in approaches for a more sustainable and resilient agricultural culture in this region, against the background of decreasing water availability and demands generated by climate change.
