Mediterranean green transition toward climate adaptation and circular water management, Siracuse (IT), 3-5 October 2022

by Alessandra Paulotto -

The International workshop from theory to practice - sharing best experiences, organized by the NAWAMED project in collaboration with MEDWAYCAP, was held in Syracuse from October 3rd to 5th, 2022.

The event  was a big and unique opportunity for a constructive confrontation at the Mediterranean level between existing good practices on the theme of water management and reuse, both at urban and rural level, presented by numerous institutional and research bodies from all the Mediterranean countries, involving dozens of European projects, in order to accompany the transition towards the application and scalability of the proposed solutions. 

NRD-UNISS, CIHEAM-BARI and CENTA participated on behalf of the Consortium.

Works started in ARBOREA

On September 15th, works for the implementation of the FIA (Forested Infiltration Area) system has started. 

The system has been designed to contribute to mitigating nitrate groundwater contamination and increase its availability. The system will be implemented in an area of about 1 hectar by using drainage water pumped from the dewatering pumping station of Luri as recharge water.

Compared to FIA systems implemented in Veneto in the past, the design of the FIA in MENAWARA presents a technical innovation represented by the Passive Treatment System to be installed within recharge trenches to improve the recharge water quality and reduce the clogging processes at the infiltrating surface.

Works are expected to be completed in 1 month.

Webinar: Solutions and challenges for sustainable water management in the Mediterranean Basin, 29 September 2022

The use of non-conventional water resources and sustainable water management through smart agriculture will be among the topics that will be discussed during the webinar entitled “Solutions and challenges for sustainable water management in the Mediterranean basin,” organized by three innovative PRIMA projects: Fit4Reuse, DSWAP and WATERMED 4.0.

The first two sessions of the webinar will feature a series of presentations by the partners of the three projects, while the last session will be a roundtable discussion featuring water experts from the Institut Méditerranéen de l’Eau (IME), Irrigants Europe, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission and the Arizona State University.

The webinar will be held on Thursday, 29 September 2022 (9:00-13:00 CEST) and will be live-streamed via Zoom.
