Partners: Institut Agro-Vétérinaire Hassan II

Wastewater infrastructure in rural and peri-urban areas of Morocco are either poorly developed or non-existent. At the same time there is growing water scarcity throughout much of Morocco. The objectives of this project are to develop a series of applied research and demonstration technologies relating to wastewater treatment and reuse, to develop and deliver a series of training seminars throughout rural Morocco and to update university training curriculum in the field of wastewater management and reuse. This project is a collaborative initiative between University of Guelph (ORWC) and our partner institution in Morocco, l’Institut Agro-Vétérinaire Hassan II.
