The aim is to strengthen self-management skills in health, energy and water
Researchers from IMDEA Water are involved with the University of Jaén in a cooperation project funded by the Andalusian Agency for International Development Cooperation (AACID) and the University of Jaén, in collaboration with the University of Tifariti.
The overall objective of this project is to contribute to improving the quality of life of the Saharawi population in the refugee camps in Tindouf (Algeria) in health, water and energy. Specifically, IMDEA Water contribute to the identification and implementation of proposals for improving technical malfunction of existing infrastructures of photovoltaic solar energy, water treatment and water distribution. IMDEA Water will also participate in training tasks of responsible personnel in camps in charge of the maintenance and repair of installed photovoltaic energy and water infrastructures.
