The NCWR Programme was launched by GWP-Med (coordinator) in 2008 in Greece and since then it has expanded in the Maltese Islands, in Cyprus, and in Sicily/ Italy. NCWR is a multi-stakeholder Programme, bringing together GWP-Med with the private sector and primary donors – the “Mission Water” Environmental Programme in Greece, the Coca-Cola Systems in Cyprus & Malta and the Coca-Cola Foundation in Atlanta, together with national and local authorities and NGOs, namely MIO-ECSDE (responsible of the educational component) and Nature Trust Malta. Apart from the educational activities for students and teachers, the Programme included applications of NCWR systems, such as rainwater harvesting and greywater recycling, awareness raising activities for the public and capacity building workshops for administrators, technicians, etc. in order to advance the NCWR management.
