Technical Guide on Technologies for NCWR Management

In 2018 the NCWR programme reached its 10th-year of operation across the Mediterranean. During this time several non conventional water technologies have been introduced and implemented to increase local water availability. 

To share the knowledge created over all these years, GWP-Med developed a technical guide with the aim to inform and educate practitioners, planners, and engineers to understand commonly available technologies for rainwater harvesting and greywater recycling.

This guide also aims to help the selection of suitable technologies according to the desired end water uses and local conditions. This guide includes a list of most common technologies for rainwater harvesting and greywater recycling.

Most of the listed technologies are based on a comprehensive literature review, as well as experience from the “Non Conventional Water Resources Programme in the
Mediterranean” and are considered as best practices in different parts of the world.

The technical guide contains information for the technologies and includes:
• Brief description
• Design criteria
• Working principles
• Applicability
• Advantages and disadvantages
