The current document presents a report on the five case studies characterization. The scientific team in this document collected and analysed all the available data for the demo sites in Tunisia, Portugal, Spain, Greece and Turkey and made an assessment on how the real situation is in each site.
All five sites are investigated through a detailed SWOT analysis to identify the main groundwater problems, hotspots and key stakeholders, which are needed in WP2 (Task 2.1) and WP4 (Task 4.1).
D5.1 highlighted the main issues such as water supplies, wastewater production, stream flows, rainfall, groundwater levels, pumping rates, water threats, hotposts needing immediate intervention and summarize the status of the aquifer.
The deliverable 5.1 aims to help the setup of the best monitoring strategy for each case study using the HRMA, which will be carried out in Task 2.1 (WP2).
