NAWAMED: Sicilian stakeholders’ debate on the economic and technical feasibility of technologies for the use of non-conventional water

Next December 16, Sicilian stakeholders are called to participate to the third Water Table and debate on how fostering the use of non-conventional water resources (NCWR), focusing on the economic and technical feasibility of existing and innovative technologies to design tailored action plans and to treat rainwater and wastewater, thus to foster the reuse at urban level.  

To debate on the water related issues it’s necessary to integrate several competences that involve multilevel stakeholders and multidisciplinary speakers, high-level experts that can stimulate the debate. 

During the Water Table participants will share the present and future challenges in order to evaluate the best measures to be planned. The starting point is the presentation of arch. Francesco Giunta, about “Sicilian building code and related opportunities”. Therefore Giulio Conte, from IRIDRA S.r.l., technical partner of NAWAMED, will supply an overview on technical and economic feasibility of suitable nature-based solutions to treat and reuse rainwater and wastewater at urban level, thus presenting some innovative measures including NAWAMEDs’ pilots. Finally, prof. Salvo La Delfa from the “Luigi Einaudi” high school of Syracuse,  will present the water management situation of the school that will be the “case study” during the working group, simulating a preliminary evaluation for drafting a green wall or a green façade, involving directly the students of the school.  

This stakeholders’ meeting is following the fruitful first “Water Table” and second “Water Table” on the potential barriers for the use of NCWR and on the existing technical solutions, held last June and October 2021.  

The EuroMediterranean Center for the Sustainable Development – SVI.MED., with the support of the associated partner, Ferla Municipality (Syracuse) is organising this cycle of four stakeholders’ meetings to jointly prepare a strategic document with suggestions for fostering the use of NCWR at Sicilian level, consequently contributing to a common Mediterranean strategy with the other NAWAMED partners.  

The online event, from 10:00 to 12:30 CEST, is in Italian and is open to the invited public authorities and key stakeholders. Nonetheless, if anyone is interested in participating, he/she can register here to submit the request.
