SAFE AND SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS FOR THE INTEGRATED USE OF UNCONVENTIONAL WATER RESOURCES IN THE MEDITERRANEAN AGRICULTURAL SECTOR
Reclaimed water and desalinated water can help bridge the gap between available and needed water, providing a continuous supply of water throughout the year. FIT4REUSE, aware of the existing situations in different parts of the Mediterranean region, will contribute to meeting these challenges by providing sustainable solutions adapted to local scenarios.
The main objective of FIT4REUSE is to provide safe, locally sustainable and adapted water supply for the Mediterranean agricultural sector through the exploitation of non-conventional water resources, that is, reclaimed water and desalinated water. In particular, FIT4REUSE will focus on innovative treatment technologies and the use of unconventional water resources in agriculture and for aquifer recharge. The participation of partners from different areas of the Mediterranean region will allow FIT4REUSE to carry out high-quality collaborative research and produce substantive results at a regional scale that fit local scenarios, and start a long-lasting collaboration between the participating institutions.
