This three-year (2004-2007) research project was implemented by an international consortium of EU and Western Balkan partners, including:

  • The Department of Agricultural Sciences, KVL University, Denmark
  • The School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, and the School of Agriculture, Food and Rural Development, University of Newcastle, UK
  • The School of Biological Sciences, University of Lancaster, UK
  • Instituto Superior de Agronomia, Universidade Técnica de Lisboa, Portugal
  • The School of Agriculture, University of Belgrade, Serbia
  • The School of Agriculture, St. Cyril and Methodius University, Skopje, Macedonia
  • The Jaroslav Černi Institute for the Development of Water Resources, Belgrade, Serbia



The main goals of this joint, multi-disciplinary effort were:

  • To contribute to the development of the Western Balkans through the introduction of strategic management of water resources aimed at alleviating drought impacts and ensuring sustainable development of agriculture, and
  • To establish and strengthen research capacity for the implementation of new technologies in agriculture and water management.

The key outcomes of the project include:alt

  • The establishment of a basic network of hydro-meteorological research sites and data collection procedures; 
  • Mastering of new measurement and data management technologies;
  • The application of GIS techniques to establish a soil/water/economy information system; and
  • The creation of a series of models which correlate plant water uptake, runoff, water quality and the economy, and the development of procedures for strategic water management in agriculture.
