“FROM A DESERTED LANDSCAPE TO A REFORESTED LANDSCAPE" PROJECT, FOR FOG WATER COLLECTION TO STRENGTHEN ACCESS TO DRINKING WATER, DAR SI HMAD ASSOCIATION FOR DEVELOPMENT, EDUCATION AND CULTURE IN MOROCCO

This project uses the new technology of CloudFishers©, which collects fog water, stores it and then filters it to supply arid hamlets located outside the drinking water system, in the Anti-Atlas territories, southwestern Morocco. The project includes the training of inhabitants and the sharing of know-how in adduction and installation of fog collection nets, at the national and international levels. Thanks to this system, nearly 1,200 people already have access to water, and daily consumption per person has increased from 7 to 26 liters between 2011 and 2016.
