EU-funded NAWAMED to foster separate systems for recycling water in Jordan
June 22, 2021
During the national meeting organized by the University of Jordan (UJ), stakeholders identified and debated about specific obstacles occurring within the country/regional context and came up with strategies on how to tackle such obstacles in order to facilitate the application of non-conventional water resource (NCWR) technologies and water-demand management (WDM) practices.
The common barriers for the application of NCWR and WDM in the Mediterranean regions were presented. There were a lot of contributions from the Jordanian stakeholders, in order to reach final shared conclusions to face four types of identified barriers: legislative/regulatory, technical, social/public perception and economic/financial.
NAWAMED (Nature Based Solutions for Domestic Water Reuse in Mediterranean Countries), implemented in the framework of the ENI CBC MED Programme, concretely contributes at promoting and testing low-cost nature-based solutions for the decentralised NCW use at domestic level.
