Final Report - SHADUF (Traditional water techniques: Cultural heritage for a sustainable future)

Project ID: 509110
Funded under: FP6-INCO


The SHADUF project was funded under the European Union's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) and aimed to evaluate the rich and diverse water saving-, water irrigation- and wastewater-related heritage in the Mediterranean region, in order to contribute to the development of a bank of information on traditional and indigenous technologies. Therefore, based on these findings, long-term understanding of water management could be integrated with efforts to develop sustainable development strategies.

This final activity report provides a brief overview of the rationale behind SHADUF and then analyses its specific objectives. The project participants are briefly presented, along with the structure of the activities in distinct work packages (WPs). Finally, the document closes with an overview of the most significant SHADUF results.
