This program aims to link up with national and international institutions for the implementation of strategies, mechanisms and institutional arrangements for the feasibility of pilot projects Research and Development (R & D) on the management of water resources and the reuse of water in the semiarid Brazilian.
- Water Reuse in the Brazilian Semiarid
The Brazilian Semiarid has the remarkable feature to reduced water availability. Moreover, the region is home to a population of 22.5 million inhabitants, where, depending on the extract of the municipality, has a per capita consumption of water ranging from 100 to 143 L / person / day, which ultimately after use, collection and treatment, represents a permanent and constant source of water and nutrients, essential inputs for the development of agriculture in the semiarid region.See Projectsmore
- Prospective study of the potential for water reuse in the Brazilian semiarid
In recent years, several regions of the country have experienced an accelerated pace of economic growth, accompanied by a high demand for natural resources, especially water. In the Brazilian semiarid, studies show that to sustain current rates of economic and population growth are made necessary investments in expansion and / or construction of new water supply systems. In this sense, the planned use of wastewater implies less need for primary catchment water resources and a smaller generation of effluents, constituting, therefore, an effective strategy for the conservation of this natural resource in its qualitative and quantitative aspects .See Projectsmore
