N-W-TN-1: Improving Water Use Efficiency in Agriculture
Scarcity of water in Tunisia makes efficient management and optimal allocation of this resource imperative. At the moment, agriculture in Tunisia is accountable for more than 80% of total withdrawals. Improving the efficiency of water use in agriculture is therefore at the heart of this activity.
N-W-TN-2: Technical Assistance & Capacity Building
The increase of sedimentation is a serious problem for water reservoirs. Well designed water dams offer a good tool for proper water management. WES will support Tunisia in finding mitigation measures for sedimentation of the Lebna and Siliana dams.
N-W-PS-2: Capacity building/trainings with pilot farmers’ associations and relevant communities on optimal irrigation management and practices
The current WES activity is focusing on increasing the knowledge of the relevant authorities responsible for monitoring irrigation projects and irrigation savings with the aim to enable them to train farmers and Water Users Association in optimal irrigation water management.
N-W-EG-2: Assist Egypt in the development of financing mechanisms, allowing the private sector to be involved and improve “water network management and resources efficiency at the on-farm level”
WES will assist Egypt in the development of financing mechanisms allowing the private sector to be involved and to improve water network management and resource efficiency at the on-farm level. The aim of this activity will be to contribute to increasing agricultural water productivity.
