The American University of Beirut (AUB),NAWAMED project partner in Lebanon, under the coordination of Dr. Yaser Abunnasr, organized two consecutive “water tables”, stakeholders’ meetings, on July 28 and 29, 2021, gathering all interested stakeholders in water use efficiency using non-conventional water resources (NCWR).

The aim addressed by participants was to identify and discuss the current and emerging water demand management (WDM) and NCWR technologies and the barriers for the uptake of WDM and NCWR in Lebanon.

Stakeholders from various backgrounds, offices and disciplines of the water sector were invited and brought together in an organized way, to share thoughts and experiences, identify obstacles, and discuss the best approaches to move forward.

The outcome of these sessions together with the outcomes of the next 2 national stakeholders’ meetings (which will be held on August 11 & 12, 2021) through the feedback of participants, will be used to formulate final conclusions combining specific policy recommendations for Lebanon, which in turn will feed into the development of a “Mediterranean Policy Document” to support the increased adoption of WDM and NCWR at Mediterranean level.
