Water use and agricultural practices in the Mediterranean area are unsustainable, and they are being worsened by the increased frequency of droughts and floods, as well as desertification and soil depletion, associated with climate change, according to the authors of this paper. They evaluate the monitoring tools used to measure success of Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area (PRIMA), an organization that aims to foster an integrated programme of sustainable food production and water provision in the framework of the water-energy-food nexus.
