Mediterranean Integrated System for Water Supply- MEDISS

Project General Objective:

To contribute to sustainable water balance in MEDISS areas, increasing resilience to water stress and climate change.

Project Specific Objectives are:

  1. To reduce water and soil salinity through nonconventional water supply, reduce stress on groundwater and enabling high productivity and diversification of agricultural production.
  2. To support LLAAs and organizations in WRM applying non-conventional water solutions for agricultural use, to reduce water consumption and limit costs for water supply.
  3. To encourage behavioral change of end-users toward the use of non-conventional water agriculture.

Project Duration:
