Building Capacities in Desalination Technology in the Gaza Strip, Palestine through curriculum development, training and research (DesalBuild)

Objectif thématique: B.4 Protection de l’environnement, adaptation au et atténuation du changement climatique
Priorité: Priorité B.4.1 Soutenir les initiatives durables visant à trouver des solutions innovantes et technologiques pour accroître la gestion efficace de l’eau et encourager l’utilisation de ressources en eau non conventionnelles
Brève description du projet : Water resources in arid and semi-arid regions, such as the Gaza Strip, are generally under increasing stresses in terms of water quality and quantity In Gaza Strip-Palestine, the Coastal Aquifer is the only natural water resource for about 2million people living in less than 365 km2. This aquifer is extensively utilized to satisfy the increasing agricultural, domestic, and industrial water demands. It represents an extreme prototype model on how several negative factors (unstable political environment, disastrous economic situation, decaying environmental conditions, unplanned and disorganized human activities), are combined together to further deteriorate the groundwater quality and quantity.
Objectifs principaux – problèmes à traiter: To strengthen national capacities in desalination for the sustainable management of water sector in the Gaza Strip
Résultats attendus: • Capacity building of the academic staff members through training and academic exchange. • Curriculum development for the civil and environmental engineering departments by the development of desalination course at both bachelor and master degrees. • Design and the implementation of a training course or diploma for local and private sector desalination plant operators and technical staff.
