This activity will support the management of water demand linked to water scarcity, including the development of political instruments aimed at reduce losses in irrigation water (for example on the plot), domestic, tourist and industrial uses and unbilled water.
N-W-MO-2: Elaboration of strategies for cost recovery, and development of tools for the evaluations of costs related to water
An increased water demand, combined with an expected decline in water supplies due to climate change, is leading to serious water scarcity in Morocco. This also entails in a significant increase in water-related costs. This activity will therefore support Morocco to elaborate strategies for cost recovery and tools in relation to water production.
