PRODIM is a transnational cooperation project, which aims at formulating a methodological framework to confront drought and water shortage based on proactive planning. This will be materialized through the following steps:
a) identification of areas under high water scarcity risk
b) building of a knowledge based system for estimation of anticipated impacts of water shortage and
c) preparation of both a strategic water shortage preparedness plan and an emergency plan. Case studies from Greece, Italy, Cyprus and Malta will be examined, in order to validate and customize the proposed plans.


PRODIM started on June 1, 2006 and ended on May 31, 2009.
