ACCBAT : Adaptation to Climate Change through improved water demand management in irrigated agriculture by introduction of new technologies and best agricultural practices

Méditerranée (Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia)

European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI) — Cross-Border Cooperation in the Mediterranean (CBCMED)

Titre : ACCBAT : Adaptation to Climate Change through improved water demand management in irrigated agriculture by introduction of new technologies and best agricultural practices

Pays/Region : Méditerranée (Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia)

Durée : 36 months (December 2012 – December 2015)

Objectifs
To improve water demand management and ensure water needs of the agricultural sector on a regional scale through : increasing water-use efficiency ; increasing the use of treated waste water for irrigated agriculture ; reducing negative environmental impacts ; based on technology transfer, training in Best Agricultural Practices.

Descriptif
ACCBAT aims at reducing the use of fresh, good quality water in irrigated agriculture, in order to preserve it for direct human consumption. Improvement of water demand management and increase of water resources availability, through re-use of urban treated wastewater, are the two main approaches chosen to reach the objectives of the project, as good practice in countries subject to water scarcity events and as mitigation measures to the impacts of global climate change. International experts will support training and research activities, and contribute to final dissemination of results.
