Water Banking and Adaptation of Agriculture to Climate Change in Northern Gaza

State of Palestine

Titre : Water Banking and Adaptation of Agriculture to Climate Change in Northern Gaza

Developing a low-carbon water management scheme and increasing water availability for sustainable agriculture.

Pays : State of Palestine

Durée : 14 Nov 2019 — 01 Jan 2024

Descriptif
The water level of the coastal aquifer in Gaza, the region’s only freshwater resource, is declining rapidly, resulting in the intrusion of seawater. Agricultural inefficiencies lead to the overuse of water and high evaporation. This project creates a closed cycle of reusing treated wastewater for irrigated agriculture. This multiplier effect will alleviate pressure on the coastal aquifer and improve the climate resilience of local populations. It will also enhance the institutional and operational capabilities for integrated water management.
