Regional Activity Centre, Sophia, Antipolis, France
(under the aegis of the Water Development Department, Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment, Cyprus)
Region: Cyprus
Type: Research and Development , Water Resources & Flood Management, Environmental Policy
Duration: 05/2008 - 06/2008

The main objectives of the study were to present:

. The priority actions to be introduced in the country in order to improve the collection of basic data and the production of the efficiency index’s various components, accompanied by a cost evaluation for such actions;
. The national efficiency improvement objectives (sectoral and total) with deadlines for achieving them;
. Policies and measures adopted, projects implemented (or to be implemented) towards improving sectoral efficiency, with the estimated cost of the various actions and projects;
. The performance indicators used to assess the effectiveness of these actions (volume of water saved, for example);
. Potential financial savings to be made through the implementation of water demand management measures.

Main findings and conclusions of the study were:


. Identification of priority actions and costing (general at €39.500 once and €40,750 recurrent, drinking at €40.000 and €10.000, irrigation at €24.000 once, industrial water use efficiency at €5.000 once) to be introduced to improve the collection of basic data for the efficiency index’s various components, accompanied by a cost evaluation for such actions;
. Identification of National efficiency improvement objectives, such as:
    • Application of irrigation water in line with the actual crops water requirements
    • Reduction of losses from the urban water distribution systems and increase of the efficiency of domestic water uses
    • Improvement of the operation, maintenance and control of the water works to ensure optimal exploitation of existing works
    • Upgrading of the distribution networks of drinking water
    • Creation of awareness and application of a policy and incentives scheme for saving water
