Activity 1

Increase water use-efficiency and increase availability of conventional water resources through use of treated WW in irrigated agriculture:

  1. Introduction of innovative water-use efficient and ecologic sustainable drip-irrigation systems consisting of pump and drip lines with efficient filtration and fertigation unit, and water storage facilities
  2. Increase the use of treated waste water as irrigation water source
  3. Introduction of production techniques following best agricultural practices


Expected outputs:

  • 90 pilot farms established (30 /country)
  • 60 on farm water ponds established with a total volume of 48.000 m3 (20 /country)
  • tww-use in irrigated agriculture and water-use efficiency increased by 30%
  • fertilizer and pesticide use decreased by 30%
  • incomes at farmers household level increased by 15%
