There are many ways to reduce the stress on freshwater sources from agriculture improving the quality of treated wastewater. This is what the MENAWARA project partners found in Carrión de los Céspedes (Seville, Spain) during the visit to the experimental plant of Centa, a research centre with extensive experience in wastewater treatment. Researchers and technicians from Tunisia, Palestine, Jordan, Spain and Italy exchanged experiences and learnt best practices to reduce water insecurity by designing the most suitable systems to promote a sustainable agriculture.

Sharing these experiences is one of the goals of the MENAWARA (Non Conventional WAter Re-use in Agriculture in MEditerranean countries) project. It is designed to enhance access to water through the treatment of wastewater to be re-used as complementary irrigation and to strengthen the capacity of governmental institutions, non-state actors operating in the sector, technicians, and farmers in Italy, Spain, Palestine, Jordan and Tunisia. It will last until August 2022 and has a total budget of €2.4 million (EU contribution: €2.2 million).
