Changing the Paradigm for Wastewater Reuse: AQUACYCLE upcoming stakeholder workshop in Tripoli, Lebanon
The event marks the launch of a first series of stakeholder workshops with the theme Changing the Paradigm for Wastewater Reuse.
Participants will be invited to identify the issues and challenges related to the reuse of treated wastewater as well as possible solutions to overcome these. Interviews with stakeholders in Lebanon, conducted by the Lebanese University earlier this year already brought into focus some of the stark realities faced on the ground! (For subtitles of the video clip in French click here).
The Workshop will also bring the opportunity to discuss and collect the feedback and expectations about the envisaged AQUACYCLE project outcomes. To this effect, the agenda includes presentations on the planned demonstration of an eco-innovative wastewater treatment technology on a pilot scale as well as the prototype design of a webGIS based decision support tool towards the drawing up of treated wastewater reuse action plans.
A multitude of stakeholders in Lebanon, representing both public and private bodies concerned with the use of non-conventional water resources, wastewater treatment plant operators as well as the scientific research community have been invited to join the event.
