Total Water Cycle Management In The City Of Almería (Andalusia, Spain)

Print Share
The city of Almería, located in the southeast of the Iberian Peninsula, is one of the driest regions in Spain. This climate has historically posed a major challenge to the economic development of the city and the region. However, it has also provided a strong incentive for the implementation of measures aimed at achieving efficient water management. Such measures have enabled the region to develop an economy driven by the horticulture and tourism sectors, making the city a center of regional economic development and a magnet for population. Efficient management of the total water cycle (production, supply, distribution, sanitation and purification), modernization of infrastructure and facilities, and the introduction of appropriate incentives for residents to consume this scarce resource more responsibly have made it possible to meet growing demand for water in the region while ensuring environmental sustainability.
