In 2015, 193 world leaders agreed to 17 global goals for sustainable development to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change by 2030. The Water JPI action IC4WATER focuses in particular on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) related to water challenges for implementing the Water JPI Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda (SRIA 2.0). It will be implemented through a Joint Call on “Water resource management in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals”. Its aim is to encourage transnational collaborative projects on research and innovation to support the implementation of water policies. This call will cover two topics:
Multiple pressure effects on ecosystems and ecosystem services as well as effective mitigation – adaptation tools and assessments for implementing the water related targets of the UN SDGs.
Developing accessible solutions for clean water management to address UN SDG6 targets and associated SDGs.
The Water JPI 2017 Joint Call is funded by 12 Funding Partner Organisations from 12 countries, for a global estimated budget of 8.55 M€. This Call is for collaborative transnational research proposals. Consortia should include a minimum of 3 partners from 3 different participating countries. Each research Partner in a project must comply with the eligibility criteria and rules of its funding organisation.
