A Non-Conventional Water Resources (NCWR) Programme in the Mediterranean is implemented by the Global Water Partnership – Mediterranean (GWP-Med) and partner institutions, organisations and companies with Coca Cola as a key collaborator. It aims at advancing the use of NCWR and in particular of traditional Rainwater Harvesting (RWH), combined with and improved by innovative techniques and methods, in water scarce communities in the Mediterranean, as a cost effective method for water availability and climate change adaptation at local level.

Investing in cheap, practical and simple demand management techniques is a known solution for addressing water scarcity challenges. But how could cost-efficient solutions be identified, in contexts where geography makes important differences, where water demand data are not consolidated and where economic reasoning is still unfamiliar to most decision-makers? How could economic analysis support the design of national priorities that would meet water demand management challenges? And how could Mediterranean countries share their experience in implementing such solutions?

To augment inadequate canal supplies, the farmers are using poor quality groundwater in many areas without curative measures. The indiscriminate use of poor quality water in turn is affecting the soil health and crop yields. In order to overcome this problem, the conjunctive or cyclic use of canal and groundwater is practiced to overcome the shortage of water and reduce salinity build up.
