Deux projets, une prioritéc: l'efficacité hydrique; MEDISS rencontre MENAWARA

Institut des Régions Arides de Médenine (IRA), the Tunisian partner of MEDISS project, participated in the kick-off meeting of MENAWARA project which was held in Gammarth – Tunisia on November 28, 2019 to launch the "MENAWARA - Non Conventional Water Re-use in Agriculture in Mediterranean countries" project, funded under the ENI CBC Med Programme.

MENAWARA project 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.

This project crosses with MEDISS project that aims to contribute to sustainable water balance in Mediterranean areas, increasing resilience to water stress and climate change through non-conventional water supply.

The partners of MENAWARA are Desertification Research Centre (NRD, Sassari), in partnership with the International Center for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies - Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Bari (Italy), Civil Volunteer Group (Palestine), National Center for Agricultural Research and Extension (Jordan) The National Sanitation Utility (Tunisia) and Foundation Center for New Water Technologies (Andalucía, Spain).

MENAWARA lead partner, Desertification Research Centre of the University of Sassari, also cooperates with the Sardinian partner of MEDISS project - CRENoS (Centre for North South Economic of Research).
