Objetivo específico proyecto 27: SO 2.5 (...) Access to water / sustainable water management

The 3 pilot cases

At least 3 pilot cases (1 per country) act as living laboratories, offering concrete lessons and allowing the Decision Support System (DSS) to be tested, enriched with feedback and new knowledge. These pilot cases not only provide practical data, but also help strengthen the strategic and operational skills of thermal city managers. The feedback obtained facilitates the optimisation of thermal water infrastructures, as well as the implementation of effective climate change adaptation measures. This practical approach aims to promote economic benefit for both operators and policy makers, thus consolidating the sustainable management of thermal water in the thermal territories of SUDOE. These 3 pilot cases are concrete initiatives that seek to test and demonstrate innovative solutions developed for the sustainable management of hot springs. The aim is to put into practice the knowledge acquired, collect tangible data, and generate valuable lessons that feed the process of adaptation to climate change. These pilot actions represent crucial steps in the transformation of theoretical concepts into operational solutions, thus contributing to the achievement of the project’s objectives.

Master Plan for the Substitution of Conventional Resources by NCA Resources

The objective of this pilot activity is to test the applicability of the TARGET strategy to the Dordogne river basin (A.1.5). The test procedures and methodologies will have been prepared in advance by CESEEAP. It will be implemented in accordance with the 4 pillars of the Strategy and respecting its 3 principles. It will allow for the implementation, after critical analysis and adaptation, of solutions tested by project partners and associated partners, in other contexts, at river basin level (in particular CEREMA’s “Resilience Compass” and ECF multi-criteria mapping analysis). The action will lead to the development of a master plan for the sustainable management of the water resources of the Dordogne basin, which will make it possible to replace the fragile water resources of the basin with unconventional water resources (regenerated waters, rainwater, grey water). This master plan will indicate, for each sector and use of the Dordogne river basin, the appropriateness of using non-conventional waters and, if so, the means to be applied (agents, techniques and financing). Following the evaluation of the implementation of the pilot action by CESEEAP, a methodological guide for the implementation of the TARGET strategy at river basin level will be developed. It will contain the tools and methods for the application of the principles (efficient use, RANC, innovation) and pillars of the Strategy (current situation, consultation, forecasting, action plan) at basin level. This guide will be used later by AMAYA and its partner JUNTA DE ANDALUCIA in an Andalusian river basin. The master plan will be adopted by EPIDOR’s governing bodies and feedback sessions on the approved TARGET strategy and evaluation of the pilot action will be organised, in particular with the partner ANEB.

Demonstrators for the reuse of water with SBN in the water treatment chain

3 demonstrators created during the project in France, Spain and Portugal. These sites will be the result of the NB-Woll (Water-Oriented Living Labs) strategy aimed at finding the best combination of demand and innovation with the help of 3 Woll (platform). Its design will be based on water demand (quality/quantity), context (uses, locations, stakeholder sensitivity) and regulations. These demonstrators will be adopted by the 3 local authorities responsible for public procurement.

Tool SID_AQUARURAL

Although not considered a pilot activity in the first phase, the SID_AQUARURAL tool meets the definition established by SUDOE: specific deployment of new devices (e.g.: services, equipment, tools, methods or approaches), experimental and demonstrative, innovative, and transferred to other territories. The tool will be developed by the USAL but with the collaboration of all partners, who will help to ensure that it solves all the needs identified by users in their areas. The tool will be continuously improved during the project and will be applied in all areas of action.

Pilot actions

The GT2 contains the demonstration of 3 pilot actions (in large blocks, although they would be more considering the small variations) that implement new devices and offer new services in different areas of the SUDOE. All of them have an experimental and demonstrative character. Its monitoring (A.2.4) will make it possible to test, evaluate and demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of its application. The results and practices of these pilot actions will be exploited and transferred to other institutions and territories through A.2.5. Collaboration between all partners will be indispensable, enabling pilot actions to be jointly developed and operated in different countries. All of them will be completed during the implementation of the project sufficiently in advance to allow the exploitation and evaluation of the demonstrative character during the project.

Pilot Activities Use of Reclaimed Water in Irrigation

Implementation of two pilot actions in woody and horticultural crops, with 13 and 2 experiences respectively, in which to evaluate the effects of the use of regenerated water in irrigation, represent a basic tool for the implementation of technological solutions that facilitate the management of irrigation water (conventional and regenerated sources) through the digitisation of irrigation, providing starting information and tools for the end user, transferable to other crops and socio-economic and cultural situations. The good management of regenerated water in the crops is ensured by the implementation of a DSS of crop fertigation (GT3), based on the analyses (soil, water, plant tissues) and the information of the low-cost sensoric installed in each experience.

Strategy and action plan for the implementation of Water-oriented Living Labs for SBNs

1 strategy to launch Living Labs focused on water for SBN and reuse (NB- Woll) will be developed. It will describe the overall method and implementation structure of NB- Woll based on a Quadruple Helice (ENoLL) approach to develop innovative solutions through a collaborative co-creation model involving all stakeholders in the water reuse value chain. The strategy will present a tailor-made approach, in which solutions will be defined according to demand. 1 action plan will be created to implement the NB-Woll strategy based on the experience of the 3 demonstrators.

Strategy to improve water efficiency and quality in rural areas SUDOE

The strategy will provide a roadmap to improve water management and increase resilience in rural SUDOE areas in a climate change context and build on all of GestEAUr’s experiences. It will be supported by the solutions identified in GT1, the results of the GT2 pilots and the simulations of the SID_AQUARURAL (GT3) tool.

Action plans

Five action plans will be produced jointly, one for each area of action. The action plans will translate the jointly developed strategy into concrete actions. They shall describe in detail the actions necessary to achieve the objectives pursued by the project and the long-term strategy, indicating the timing, actions, responsibilities, tasks of the partners and the means. The action plans must be jointly developed by the partners and finalised before the end of the project. They shall be adopted for implementation by at least one organisation from each participating country within one year of completion.

Strategy to increase the use of regenerated water in agriculture

It will consist of an inclusive document including multilevel governance (local, regional, national and European). The strategy aims to improve the efficiency of water uses, as well as the sustainable management of water resources, contemplating regenerated water as an alternative water resource and that must be studied and mobilised for an efficient and inclusive management in the SUDOE space, focused on its use in the irrigation of crops. The development of a transnational, joint strategy will be obtained from an integrative vision (water resource modelling, life cycle analysis, and socio-economic analysis) with which an improvement of irrigation management is achieved, and therefore reducing the impact of crops on water resources, releasing the pressure on the drinking water system in global terms in the SUDOE space.
