Brasilia, March 20: Reuse in the Mediterranean and its impact on territories
Despite important improvements, access to safe water and sanitation are still boiling issues in Southern and Eastern Mediterranean Countries, especially considering their structural water stress situation, growing anthropogenic pressures and anticipated climate change impacts. Consequently, as regards Mediterranean cities, one of the main challenge is to improve the resilience of their current water management & sanitation systems. It offers opportunities to break away from past water management approaches and to shift to innovative water management solutions, such as integrated urban water management, which includes the use of treated wastewater.
Based on lessons learned on the ground, IPEMED and its partners will organize in the framework of the World Water Forum, on March 20 – 14:30-16:00 (Brasilia, Room 8), a bottom-up and participative session.
Among the participants :
- Hajiba BOURZIZA, In charge of planning, ONEE
- Kelly ROBIN, Project Manager, IPEMED
- José MARTINEZ, Deputy Director, INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS, IRSTEA
- Eric MINO, Director, SEMIDE
- Giora SHAHAM, Director General, Israel National Water Authority
