The event was organized by the Desertification Research Centre of the University of Sassari (NRD-UNISS), coordinator of the “Non Conventional WAter Re-use in Agriculture in MEditerranean countries” (MENAWARA) project, and partner of “The MEDiterranean pathWAY for innovation CAPitalisation toward an urban-rural integrated development of non-conventional water resources” (MEDWAYCAP) project, funded by the ENI CBC MED programme.

Prof. Giovanna Seddaiu talked about how DNI contributes to building a new generation of scientists through various capacity development initiatives such as the international PhD program in Desertification and Land Degradation and the recently launched DNI academy initiative.
