Solar energy for water desalination
A geographic region with scarce water resources can rely on an abundance of solar energy, however, the challenge remains in how to exploit this to desalinate water for agriculture and human consumption. The answer may lie in Concentrating solar power (CSP) technology which involves using mirrors to reflect sunlight and collect solar heat to generate electricity.

CLIMATE Mitigation research
EU project The ClimaSouth project supports climate change mitigation and adaptation in 9 South Mediterranean countries.
The project supports the strengthening of institutional adaptation capacity towards climate resilience. Capacity enhancements are being built across the spectrum of climate information, vulnerability assessments and adaptation strategies. Activities are structured in ways that increase regional cooperation and promote sharing of experiences and case studies at the country level.
