  1. Implemented by Project Funded by the European Union (ENPI/2011/280-008) Sustainable Water Integrated Management (SWIM) Demonstration Project SWIM Second Steering Committee Meeting 17th - 18th October 2012 a brief view on WADIS-MAR Project Prof. Giorgio Ghiglieri – ghiglieri@unica.itSalvatoreG.P. VIRDIS, PhD- virdis@uniss.it Project website:www.wadismar.eu

  2. Description of the action and its effectivenessWADIS-MAR Overall and specific objectives • General objective • to improve living standards of the rural population • to combat water scarcity/drought and overexploitation • to mitigate ongoing desertification processes in the framework of climate change • Specific objectives • to increase water availability through artificial aquifer recharge and evapotranspiration reduction • to enhance water quality by reducing pollution caused by unsustainable farm practices • to manage flood flow, run-off and hence reduce erosion • to promote water efficient farming systems and the use of more stress-tolerant crops • To promote best agricultural practices

  3. WADIS-MAR: THE CHALLENGE EXTERNAL SIDE Physical/environmentalsocio-economicbaseline study Knowledge-based technological support Intervention planning “Soft” intervention Public participatedactivities Efficient, durable, sustainable and replicable action LOCAL SIDE

  12. Wadi Biskra watershed (Algeria) • Systèmes de recharge en Algérie • Par épandage d’eau de crues sur de grandes surfaces « Système Legros » • Par lâchers des barrages • Système ANRH (2000):par bassins d’infiltration • Système de retenues en «big-bag» (2002-2003)  • Système des grands bassins (2003-2004) • Injection d’eau dans les puits et forages

  13. WADIS-MAR expected results • Result 1 Integrated Water and Agricultural Management (IWAM) System is built • Result 2 Agricultural practices and rational irrigation techniques are improved • Result 3 Capacity building and awareness in local and national institutions are improved WHT & MAR Agriculture Involvement

  14. WADIS-MAR breakdown of the activities • Activity 1 - Project Management and coordination • Activity 2 - Integrated Water and Agricultural Management (IWAM) System design • Activity 3 - IWAM System construction • Activity 4 - Performance assessment and maintenance phase • Activity 5 - Awareness raising and capacity building • Activity 6 - Dissemination
