The Non Conventional Water Resources (NCWR) Programme is designed to demonstrate how to make the most of the existing water sources and alleviate the water crisis in the Mediterranean.
With the support of the Coca-Cola Foundation, and in partnership with local and national authorities and the Coca-Cola Company and its country bottlers, the NCWR Programme aims to advance the use of NCWR technology to increase the local water budget and contribute to climate change adaptation in insular and urban communities.
Water is a finite resource and extremely scarce across the Mediterranean. The gap between water availability and demand, in a context of increasing pressures and climate change impacts, dictates the exploitation of Non Conventional Water Resources to cover secondary, non-potable uses.
Over the past 10 years, the Programme recorded the application of NCWR technologies in a Technical Guide, to inform and educate practitioners, planners, and engineers about Rainwater Harvesting and Greywater Recycling.
