The ICARUS project aims at increasing, in selected areas of Italy, Portugal and Spain, efficient water use in agriculture by analysing biophysical, socio-economic and institutional dimensions of sustainable water management and identifying innovative adaptation strategies, practices and tools for saving water in irrigated productions systems, which could be disseminated in other Mediterranean countries.

ICARUS was funded within the IWRMnet 2nd Common Call Initiative by ISPRA – Istituto Superiore per la Protezione e la Ricerca Ambientale (Italy), Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación (Spain), and Foundation for Science and Technology (Portugal). It had a duration of 27 months, from 01-09-2010 to 31-12-2012.
