D.5.1. Review of the use of economic instruments in water management in Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia

Research Areas
  • Agricultural economics

MADFORWATER project aims to ?develop an integrated set of technological and management instruments for the enhancement of wastewater treatment, treated wastewater reuse for irrigation and water efficiency in agriculture, with the final aim to reduce water vulnerability in selected basins in Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia? (MADFORWATER Document of Action ? part B ? page 1). Currently, the main sources of abstraction in Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia are the conventional ones - e.g. surface or groundwater-, with only a small proportion of supply coming from non-conventional sources. Therefore, it is expected that MADFORWATER contributes to exploit the potential of non-conventional sources in the region as to deal with the problems of water scarcity in the region.
