Acequia report: climate change, droughts and water uses

Description

In January 2018, the President of the Island Council sent and official letter to the JRC to explore the possibility of carrying out a workshop in Gran Canaria with regards to the topic of climate change adaptation. The JRC accepted and proposed the analysis of drought risks since Gran Canaria Island had been affected by a severe drought the previous year, in 2017. Both organisations agreed and collaborated to develop the ACEQUIA workshop called 'Climate change, droughts and water uses in Gran Canaria'. It took place in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria from 18-20 June 2018.

This report is one of the outcomes of this workshop and has a twofold task. Firstly, it is aimed at summarising the main conclusions obtained in the ACEQUIA workshop, and secondly, it is also aimed at moving a step forward in the proposal of more detail actions to tackle drought risks in Gran Canaria by means of co-creation of knowledge.
