Scientific strategy for sustainable agricultural water management 

The objective of this WP, based on a SWOT analysis, is to focus on defining the priorities and actions needed for a new national research strategy in the area of sustainable agricultural water management and for stepping up and simulating scientific excellent and innovation capacity of UNI-BL and other BH institutions.

The strategy will be based on the principles of sustainable development, current research and S&T achievements and Responsible Research and Innovation process that will step up and stimulate scientific excellence and innovation capacity of UNI-BL and other BH institutions on the short and long-term basis. 

This will imply the engagement of a wide range of stakeholders, the design of a policy roadmap for decision makers and the establishment of a Scientific External Advisory Board for the review for existing strategy and monitoring of the quality of research conducted in the field of agricultural water management.
