Water JPI 2017 Joint Call on “Water resource management in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals”
The Coordination and Support Action IC4WATER was launched in January 2017 in support of the Water JPI, and is funded by the European Commission under H2020. IC4WATER aims to implement Joint Activities in a dedicated effort to reinforce international cooperation in the area of water challenges, and to further support the implementation and the strategy of the Water JPI.
IC4WATER focuses in particular on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) related to water challenges for implementing the Water JPI Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda (SRIA 2.0). It will be implemented through a Joint Call for transnational collaborative projects on research and innovation to support the implementation of water policies. IC4WATER aims to develop new governance and knowledge management approaches by:
- Developing new approaches and tools for water management aimed at setting up innovative alternatives suitable for decision-making.
- Envisaging education and communication initiatives to raise social awareness of consumption habits and water scarcity and to increase the levels of social acceptance and use of recycled water.
IC4WATER will benefit researchers, policy-makers, water authorities, utility operators, industry and citizens by developing research and innovation in the water area.
