MEDISS first newsletter is now available!
MEDISS addresses thematic objective “B.4 Environmental protection, climate change adaptation and mitigation”, priority “B.4.1 Water efficiency”.
According to the features and specific needs of the partner areas - Palestine (Jordan Valley), Jordan (Aqaba Governorate), Italy (Arborea) and Tunisia (Gabès) - MEDISS will test innovative solutions in the use of treated wastewater and desalination of brackish water.
MEDISS addresses the issue of improving the quality of saline groundwater present in the MED area opening up alternative irrigation for higher quality and more diversified cultivations.
Specific Objectives are threefold:
- to reduce water and soil salinity through non-conventional water supply, reduce stress on groundwater and enabling high productivity and diversification of agricultural production;
- to support non-conventional water solutions for agricultural use, to reduce water consumption and limit costs for water supply;
- to encourage behavioural change of end-users toward the use of non-conventional water in agriculture.
Six partners are involved in the project:
Palestinian Wastewater Engineers Group and the Governorate of Jericho & Al Aghwar (Palestine), Aqaba Water Company (Jordan), Institut des Regions Arides (Tunisia), University of Cagliari - CRENoS and Enas - the Sardinian Water Board (Italy).
