WAT’SAVEREUSE is an international and interregional project funded by the EU’s LIFE programme, led by the Pyrenees-Mediterranean Euroregion (EPM) which consists of 3 regions (Catalonia, the Balearic Islands, and Occitania) and 9 entities: Agència Catalana de l’Aigua, Eurecat, Catalan Water Cluster-CWP, ABAQUA, AETIB, CLIQIB, ​​Aqua-Valley, and AD’OCC.

The general objectives of the project are to communicate and raise awareness about the benefits of transnational initiatives and legislation that promote the circular economy of water, particularly in the tourism sector, thereby reducing consumption and the need to resort to the reuse of treated water as an alternative resource.

Special emphasis is placed on the Mediterranean tourism sector.

The project will help alleviate the identified environmental problem (water scarcity and drought), in particular through awareness campaigns aimed at various target groups: tourists, tourist establishments, municipalities, public bodies, and local authorities.

The WAT’SAVEREUSE project aims in particular to:

• Reduce water consumed by tourist establishments and tourist activities

• Encourage the implementation of water saving solutions

• Promote and raise awareness in stakeholders in the tourism industry concerning the reuse of treated water and improve the perception that tourists have of reused treated wastewater.
