Abstract

This work seeks to study the feasibility of reusing the treated wastewater (domestic wastewater) from a treatment plant, for agricultural purposes as an adaptation measure to climate change in Ain Temouchent, an arid region located in north western Algeria. To achieve this, the specific objectives will be: to analyse the physico-chemical and biological parameters of the water produced from the treatment plant, to make the comparison with the required standards of water reuse for irrigation and to see the possibility of the implementation of an irrigation project in the region. A study will be carried out in the wastewater treatment plant of the region, in order to be aware about the eventual problems encountered in such kind of project. From the obtained results, some recommendations will be done for a better progress of the project, leading to a better integrated water resources management of the region in the context of climate change.

Keywords: Water reuse, agriculture, adaptation, climate change
