Water harvesting and Agricultural techniques in Dry lands: an Integrated and Sustainable model in MAghreb Regions

WADIS-MAR is a demonstration project funded by European Commission through Sustainable Water Integrated Management (SWIM) Programme.

WADIS-MAR action concerns the realization of an integrated water harvesting and aquifer recharge techniques in two watersheds in Maghreb Region, Oued Biskra in Algeria and Oum Zessar in Tunisia, characterized by water scarcity, overexploitation of groundwater resources and high vulnerability to climate change risk.

WADIS-MAR project, taking into account past local traditional experiences, will implement a sustainable water and agriculture management system based on participative and bottom-up approach and will achieve to enable local communities to manage groundwater resources, starting from a more efficient use of water harvesting techniques (WHT) and from a sustainable agricultural practices application.

Duration of the Action: December 2011- June 2016
