SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION IN AGROECOSYSTEMS WITH SCARCE WATER (SUPWAS)
September 5, 6 and 7, 2022. Albacete.
CIGR Section I

MEDWATERICE PRIMA Project
PRECIMED PRIMA Project
The Conference aims to be a meeting and reflection between farmers, technicians and researchers, within the process of demonstration and transfer of research results to the productive sector under the scenario of decreasing water availability and increasing energy costs. Thus, contributing to the social, economic, and environmental sustainability of water and energy use in agroecosystems located in arid and semi-arid areas to cope with climate change.
Venue: University of Castilla-La Mancha, Campus Universitario, General Services Building, Albacete, Spain.
A practical objective of the Conference is to explore the formation of a Community of Practice on how science and practice could come together to address interdependencies in the management of WEFE resources in the Mediterranean region. PRIMA, with its network, will have a key role there.
The deadlines for registering and for submitting abstracts are the following:
Registration: 26th September
Submission of Abstracts for posters: 31st August
Also, the PRIMA WEFE Nexus prizes will be awarded during the conference. It is a further opportunity for researchers to disseminate the results of their research. It’s an opportunity to recognise those research teams and practitioners having devised and demonstrated the successful implementation of combined management practices of water, energy, food and ecosystem resources at the local or regional scale in The Mediterranean.
The prize award ceremony is foreseen on the 29th September in the frame of a high-political session.
Several PRIMA projects coordinators will be invited to breakout sessions (https://wefe-nexus-medconf-2021.eu/program) to participate and offer demonstration cases likely to show the economic and socio-ecological benefits of the WEFE Nexus approach.
