 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'SIRIUS addresses efficient water resource management in water-scarce environments. It focuses in particular on water for food production with the perspective of a sustainable agriculture in the context of integrated river-basin management, including drought management. It aims at developing innovative and new GMES service capacities for the user community of irrigation water management and sustainable food production, in accordance with the vision of bridging and integrating sustainable development and economic competitiveness. SIRIUS merges two previously separate strands of activities, those under the umbrella of GMES, related to land products and services (which address water to some extent), and those conducted under FP5/6-Environment and national programs, related to EO-assisted user-driven products and services for the water and irrigation community. As such, it will draw on existing GMES Core Services as much as possible, by integrating these products into some of the required input for the new water management services.It also makes direct use of the EO-assisted systems and services developed in the FP6 project PLEIADeS and its precursor EU or national projects, like DEMETER, IRRIMED, ERMOT, MONIDRI, AGRASER, all addressing the irrigation water and food production sectors, some of which have resulted in sustainable system implementation since 2005. SIRIUS addresses users (water managers and food producers) at scales ranging from farm, over irrigation scheme or aquifer, to river-basins. It will provide them with maps of irrigation water requirements, crop water consumption and a range of further products for sustainable irrigation water use and management under conditions of water scarcity and drought, integrated in leading-edge participatory spatial online Decision-support systems. The SIRIUS service concept considers the economic, environmental, technical, social, and political dimensions in an integrated way.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Researchers have developed satellite-assisted services to support adequate water resource management. These services are particularly useful in water-scarce regions where good management is essential for food production.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

In non-industrialised countries, a lack of water for farming can cause conflicts that destabilise entire regions, both economically and socially. Periodic droughts and floods, as well as growing populations, exacerbate the problem.

The EU-funded http://www.sirius-gmes.es (SIRIUS) project drew on satellite imagery and other data and media to create tools that help communities manage water resources effectively. The tools include maps of irrigation water requirements and crop water consumption, as well as integrated river basin and drought management advice to facilitate sustainable agriculture.

All three SIRIUS services (drought, irrigation and farm management tools) are powered by an easy-to-use online system known as SPIDER. This platform encourages stakeholder participation, collaboration, and transparent governance due to its non-academic and non-technical interface.

The services have been piloted in water-scarce regions in Brazil, Egypt, India, Italy, Mexico, Romania, Spain and Turkey, during at least one growing season. In parallel, researchers assessed key aspects of sustainable water management within these regions.

Furthermore, SIRIUS developed a roadmap for ongoing implementation of the services in all of the pilot areas. Ultimately, these new tools will help reduce conflict caused by water shortages.
