In January 2017 we have successfully tested and carried out the SMAG method, a participatory tool developed by our project partner IRSTEA within the framework of the SPARE Project.

The objective of this tool is to model and analyse the governance process of a river basin over the past 40 years. The method was used to determine the key steps of the decision-making processes and the creation of a common understanding of the causes and impacts that have led to the present governance. Gathered experiences of the past will serve to establish guidelines for future water management.
