The digital tool for predicting the availability and demand of water resources in the Mediterranean.

Governance of water resources and the use of Data Science for the sustainable management of aquifers in the Mediterranean.

One of the greatest challenges for the integrated management of groundwater bodies is the lack of information regarding water resources and the poor exchange of data between various water users.

It is against this backdrop that GOTHAM was created. GOTHAM is an European project developed to develop and validate a digital tool to predict availability and demand of water in the Mediterranean, along with its implications for groundwater sustainability.

A scalable and replicable tool (called GTool) will be developed for different water users which, through Machine Learning techniques, will allow progress to be made towards effective water governance, which is key for the integrated management of water resources. The initiative will be implemented in the west of Almeria (Spain) and replicated in Jordan and Lebanon.
