Rewarded by the SUEZ-Institut de France Award in the Access to Essential Services Category, this project aims to supply drinking water to the arid settlements in south-west Morocco by harvesting water from fog
A unique project in North Africa.
The project uses the new CloudFishers© technology to collect, store and filter fog water in order to supply the arid settlements in south-west Morocco. Fog harvesting nets are installed at the summit of Mount Boutmezguida, the highest mountain in the Moroccan Anti-Atlas, and collect more than 20 litres/day/m2 . The water collected is mixed with borehole water and distributed to local villages.
In 2018, 14 villages benefit from this water, representing approximately 660 permanent residents, as well as a further 600 persons in a situation of “transhumance” who return to the region during the harvesting region.
