Description

Alentejo, located in South of Portugal, is characterized by scarcity of water resources and population dispersion, factors that affect the quantity and quality of water supply.

To overcome this fragility, which is worsening in the context of climate change, an important investment plan is underway, namely the construction of infrastructures, the integration of numerous autonomous systems into more robust systems and the  connection to reliable and quality sources of water.
