>  Application of European standards on water management and wastewater treatment to non-European countries.

>  Willingness of stakeholders to get involved on a new, innovative transparent governance.

>  Economic growth in the study sites due to the adaptation of an efficient and effective management of groundwater.

>  Positive impact on the environment.

>  Improve water management by Water Authorities and concerned stakeholders by means of an innovative DSS tool.


> Identification of groundwater problems in the MED region by means of a SWOT analysis regarding quantitative and qualitative groundwater aspects of the five field sites.

>  Investigation of the long-term groundwater trends by a data-driven analysis using historical in-situ groundwater quantity and quality data.

>  Application of the innovative High-Resolution Monitoring Approach (HRMA: allowing near real-time monitoring).

> Incorporating groundwater management within a broader socio-economic context to improve water resources resilience through stakeholder workshops and dynamic simulation modelling.

> Raising awareness in society and among stakeholders to improve groundwater management through the implementation of a multi-actor participatory approach.

> Identification of groundwater problems and implementation of the appropriate feasible preventive mitigation options through sustainable learning processes.

> Establishment of adaptable and sustainable management strategies through the combination of HRMA, smart modelling, socio-economic assessments, bottom-up management and remediation strategies, an innovative Fuzzy WebDSS tool and effective communication dissemination strategies.

> Prediction of the effects of future climate and anthropogenic changes, and how they can be mitigated by stakeholder-suggested preventive options using smart modelling.

> Advice to industries at selected sites to reduce their discharge loads through the adoption of a local water management concept and the implementation of the best technologies for the treatment of their effluents.

> Development of an easy-to-use Fuzzy WebDSS tool benefiting from the real-time measured data using specific sensors and modelling results to reinforce early-warning and ensure the real-time groundwater characterization and optimal decision making.

> Promotion of InTheMED results and improvement of its regional and international visibility through participation in high-level international conferences and integration of different initiatives targeting the MED region.

>  Upscaling of the InTheMED concept to the whole MED region and replicability of its methodology to other MED countries through cross-country dissemination tools based on participatory workshops and public communication.
