The ReWater MENA project has been working since 2018 on expanding the safe reuse of water in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), with a focus on Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon. After four years of many learnings, dialogues, collaborations and knowledge production about water reuse in the region, the closing workshop will be the occasion to synthesize the key learnings and practical outputs of the project.
Water scarcity and pollution are major threats for human development in the Middle East, and Lebanon is no exception. Wastewater treatment and its reuse in agriculture can contribute to addressing the increasing water crisis in the region. But, what is the actual potential of water reuse as a solution for agriculture in Lebanon?
ReWater MENA project in partnership with Arab Countries Water Utilities Association (ACWUA), organized a series of training workshops on the Safe Use of Wastewater in Jordan. The workshop aims to build and strengthen the capacities of the stakeholders and participants in the field of safe use of wastewater through conducting a series of training courses in Jordan, Egypt and Lebanon under the topics of reuse technologies, economic models for reuse projects, reuse safety plans, reuse governance, public acceptance and gender integration in reuse interventions. In addition to raising awareness and introducing the reuse concept in the region as well.
