Titre : CB-WR-MED Capacity Building for Direct Water Reuse in the Mediterranean Area

Région : Méditerranée

Code du projet : 266609 FP7-INCO

Durée : From 2010-11-01 to 2013-04-30

Descriptif
In the Mediterranean region the pressure on water resources is high, so there is no water to “waste”. Water is becoming a limiting factor for agricultural, and even for industrial development. Treated wastewater is part of the community’s water resources and one component of sustainable water management approach. The direct reuse, instead of wastewater discharge in the network, reduces costs of treatment and throwing of biological recalcitrant compounds into a water stream. To reach this purpose, water treatment should target (i) pollutants degradation, (ii) multi-purpose water use and (iii) sustainability of the technologies. Reinforcement of cooperation between EU and ENP countries is necessary to implement sustainable water management.

The project proposes to use the frame of FP7 programme (ERA-WIDE) for the reinforcement of cooperation capacities of Tunisian research centre “Centre of Water Researches and Technologies, CERTE” in specific items which CERTE has already an expertise to build on competency and capacity. The topic “Wastewater treatment for elimination of recalcitrant compounds allowing multiuse of the water and direct recycling and avoiding pollution of water system” is considered the leitmotiv for this proposal.
The objective of this project is to reinforce the R&D capacities of CERTE and its regional and international impact with the ultimate goal that R&D activities lead to a fruitful cooperation with the UE for sustainable water management in accordance with the national and European strategies.
There is much effort needed to build cooperation to develop appropriate sustainable water management. Still, high attention is given to capacity building on EC cooperation and scientific research through workshops, trainings, technical visits and pilot plants upgrading. Networking and dissemination to bring the results of these efforts to effective cooperation include construction of a web platform, network and international conference
