how to Achieve sustainable WAter systems connecting Research, people and policy makers in Europe

AWARE is a Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) project. The focus was the definition of a methodology for the management of participative decisional processes, applied on three case studies (Po delta, gulf of Riga, Seine delta).

The methodology, developed according with Water Framework Directive, has aimed to engage the key actors into the sharing of knowledge, moving from an organisational learning approach to the wider concept of social learning, including directly societal aspects and the perspective of the different social groups affected by the research and policy development.
