The Water Management in Tunisia: A Trend towards Unconventional Resources

Ali BOUCHRIKA, Habib JOUBER, Wajdi BARDI

Abstract


This article analyses the current situation of water management in Tunisia focusing on constraints to which this management is subject. The empirical results show the absence of a long-term equilibrium between production capacity and consumption patterns. This imbalance is characterized by a deficiency in the quantity of water produced, that is to say that the quantities applied for exceed those produced for future projection. Currently, as the closer one gets to a full phenomenon which is the use of available resources, a trend towards unconventional resources such as treated wastewater (TW) may solve the problem although partially.
