It was found that in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region from climate-related water scarcity, greatest economic losses can be expected (World Bank 2018 in World Resources Institute 2019). Yet, here are unused opportunities to boost water security in MENA. Large amounts (about 82%) of the region’s wastewater is not reclaimed; meaning using this resource would produce a new and clean water resource (World Resources Institute, 2019). The scope of the MADFORWATER project is to develop integrated technological and management solutions to boost wastewater treatment and an efficient reuse of treated wastewater for irrigation in selected hydrological basins in Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia. In this deliverable 6.1 integrated water & land management strategies and policy recommendations were established. This was carried out in two main approaches: i) the integration and assessment of water & land management strategies, ii) policy recommendations to promote the adoption of the proposed technologies and integrated waster & land management strategies in the target countries.
