Smart Prices and Drought Insurance Schemes in Mediterranean Countries
European Innovation Partnership on Water, EU 2020 Innovation Union
SPADIS is one of the Action Groups of the European Innovation Partnership on Water (EIP Water), aiming at establishing and implementing a methodology on “Smart Pricing and Drought Insurance Schemes in Mediterranean Countries”. The methodology will be based on improved analysis (DPSIR), data and (water management and risk assessment) models to reduce and mitigate drought impacts, by managerial and behavioral change, and appropriate economic instruments for increased water security. The Action Group involves different perspectives, such as insurance, water pricing for re-used wastewater, and water trading. The implementation phase will test the data sources, and possible ways of improving and sharing them (e.g. via a common system under SEEA-W), and the analytical models to validate the application.
