Type of problem:
Intensive groundwater exploitation for irrigation.

Specific challenges:
Seawater intrusion; severe depletion of groundwater levels.

Solutions proposed:
MAR feasibility mapping at regional scale: Chiba watershed in the Cap Bon peninsula; validation at local scale: use of treated wastewater in infiltration ponds, dam water release and in-channel modifications, and injection of transferred water resources in existing pumping wells.

AGREEMAR expected impacts:
Improved water quality and increased availability of recovered water for irrigation; guaranteed lifetime duration of MAR schemes by integrated planning.
