EU LIFE WATACLIC Project


The main objective for this project is to achieve reductions in water and energy consumption within Italian urban areas via a combination of new fiscal and communication tools. A wide range of stakeholders will be involved in the process that will comprise the following technical actions:

  • Introduction of new rules on urban planning to encourage greater use of technologies/strategies such as rainwater harvesting, grey water recycling and other techniques that will enable more sustainable urban water use; and
  • Adoption of tariff schemes aimed at discouraging unwise water use.

Accompanying information efforts will aim to achieve the following:

  • Improve knowledge and awareness among professional plumbing organisations about water saving techniques; and
  • Ensure effective awareness-raising campaigns are directed at the general public about issues such as sustainable water consumption and associated links with energy consumption.
