MEDWAYCAP: A National Action Plan for the valorisation of Non-Conventional Water drawn up in Tunisia
November 29, 2023
Following a first workshop & B2B that brought together the main players and initiatives in the field of non-conventional waters (NCW) and based on the capitalization of present expertise, while integrating the current eco-system and the legal and institutional context, an Action Plan for the valorization of non-conventional water (NCW Action Plan) has been developed by the team of the Centre for Water Research and Technologies (CERTE) and its associate partner CONECT, with the support of “Alghalia Technology and Development” in the framework of the MEDWAYCAP project.
Another Workshop entitled “Action Plan for the Valorisation of NCW” was organized where the action plan was carefully studied, discussed, commented and completed by all participants.
The Action Plan is divided into three categories: (i) Market development prospects, (ii) Promotion of solutions/BPs for adding value to NCW, (iii) Regulatory framework and access to finance. Each of these themes includes a set of actions, specifying the key players, the time required for implementation and the expected impact. At the end of the workshop, a co-constructed action plan will be adopted, to which each of the participants/actors will contribute through his or her professional activities and capabilities, network and partnership, and which will constitute a guideline document for stakeholders and decision-makers. The NCW Action plan is in line with the water strategies as Water2050 and REUT2050.
