Addressing the thematic objective "environment protection and climate change adaptation" of the strategic call for projects of the Italy-Tunisia 2014-2020 program, EauSIRIS brings together key actors from Sicily and Tunisia who will joint efforts to design and implement a new multidimensional and effective strategy for a sustainable agriculture, resilient to climate change and less energy demanding.

Pilot actions of the EauSIRIS project will first target selected hill lakes that will be upgraded. Local authorities and communities will benefit from capacity building programs for the optimal management and use of hill lake resources to promote a local green economy.
