The 'Zero Drop' Project

The Zero Drop water resources protection program is implementing water saving technical solutions in areas facing intense water scarcity, while raising awareness and building capacities to better manage and conserve water resources. It is implemented in close collaboration with public authorities, responding to specific needs and particularities of different communities. Interventions are donated to and managed by public authorities, in order to continue to offer benefits over time.

The ‘Zero Drop’ program is implemented by the Global Water Partnership - Mediterranean (GWP-Med) with the support of The Coca-Cola Foundation, in collaboration with public authorities and local communities.

'Zero Drop' builds on the experience accumulated through 16 years of collaboration between GWP-Med and The Coca-Cola Foundation. Across Greece, Cyprus, Malta and Italy, the GWP-Med/Coca-Cola partnership has yielded 122 technical applications resulting in the saving of 2.1 billion liters of water in Mediterranean water-scarce islands and mainland coastal areas. More than 330,000 beneficiaries have benefited from these interventions, as well as youth engagement and educational activities designed to build capacities around water management.
