The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Region is facing chronic water scarcity, which is very severe in some countries such as Jordan and Yemen. INWRDAM had been involved since February 2000 in greywater research activities in Jordan, Lebanon and Yemen. Houses in rural areas in the MENA region are usually simple and this makes it possible to separate greywater from black water with minimal modification of sewer pipes inside the house. In 2000 INWRDAM conducted a comprehensive evaluation of the potential for greywater reuse in rural areas of Jordan.

Since January 2009, Sarar Transformación has been providing improved access to safe water and sustainable sanitation to approximately 2000 students and teachers in 17 pre-school, primary and secondary schools in the upper Copalita watershed, Oaxaca, Mexico.  Drawing from its extensive experience with the SARAR participatory education methodology -and the related PHAST approach-, the program involves the entire school community in the assessment process, choice of technical options, and trains students, teachers and parents in the use and maintenanceof the facilities, as well as proper hygiene. Through such training, Sarar-T has introduced and fostered the uptake of alternative dry sanitation facilities, a previously uncommon technology in schools of the region, which conserve water and keep waste out of waterways.
