Municipal water can be reused in 87%
Israel now reuses 87% of the municipal water it consumes, thanks to a management that has overcome the scarcity that exists in the region.
"What we have done in Israel can be adapted to any country, what matters is the concept, adapting it to national parameters," explained Ben-Gurion University professor, Eilon Adar, who clarified that this method can be adapted to Portugal.
Eilon Adar is one of the invited experts of the 2nd International Forum GTM - Gaia Todo um Mundo, in Vila Nova de Gaia, this year focusing on cooperation for sustainable development.
In the world "people are used to pay for gas and fuel, but still think that water is free, so there is no incentive to save water”, argued Eilon Adar, saying Israel was "the first country in the world to consider water a convenience, encouraging its use in the best possible way in all sectors of society."
