The project faces relevant water management issues in the Mediterranean area. Its objective is to bring innovative solutions combining water use efficiency and non-conventional water and build local capacities to adopt/upscale them. Cross-border capacity building, roadmaps, and plans for improved water management based on project results will be carried out while enhancing public-private cooperation will be fostered together with investments for the adoption/upscale of the proposed solutions.
The project started on 1 September 2019 and will last until 31 August 2022.
