Title: A report on the efforts, activities, challenges and opportunities for the two sides/communities of Cyprus to conserve water
AKTI Project and Research Centre/The Turkish Cypriot Chamber of Environmental Engineers
The 'Awareness Raising Measures for Water Saving' project was the first confidence-building measure promoted under the auspices of the Technical Committee on Environment. The project was implemented by AKTI Project and Research Centre and the TC Chamber of Environmental Engineers with support from the United Nations Development Programme-Action for Co-operation and Trust (UNDP-ACT). The overall objective of the project was to increase public awareness on water issues with a view to sustainable use and promote good water saving measures through the involvement of the multi-stakeholders, island wide.
This report is prepared with the aim to present the main activities and results of the 'Awareness raising measures for water saving' project. The water stakeholders of the island were presented with suggestions and proposals for future actions related to the sustainable use of water resources in Cyprus, derived from the knowledge and experiences gained throughout the project period. It is envisaged that this report will be taken into account and used as a useful tool by different actors in order to reinforce the efforts for common action to conserve water, which has already started with this water campaign. The momentum created by this project and the mobilization of the various stakeholders and public must be maintained and actions should be taken further with new initiatives that will allow Greek and Turkish Cypriots to manage their water resources together in a sustainable way.
