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.
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.
