During the implementation of the WATER POrT component of the WATER SUM project, the beneficiary countries explicitly requested capacity building on water demand management. One of the project tasks was therefore dedicated to this topic and included training events, demonstration case studies, workshops, and the development of good practice case studies in order to share existing experience and promote the exchange of information within the region. The 30 case studies presented in this handbook were written by a team of six experts from diverse backgrounds, each following the same assessment framework to ensure that the cases were based on the same methodology. Most of the collected good practices are from within the MENA region, although some experience gathered from other continents was also included.
The WATER SUM project is implemented by the REC with funding from the Government of Sweden.
