Overall Objectives

BRAMAR is a German-Brazilian research and technology project that wants to improve integrated water resources management in semiarid Northeast Brazil. Water Reuse and Managed Aquifer Recharge will be studied in their role as key elements of sustainable development strategies. The project will also increase the opportunities of German research institutes and companies to contribute to the development of the Brazilian water sector and access to the Brazilian market in key areas.

Water reuse and Managed Aquifer Recharge pilot plants will be implemented in various case study areas in Northeast Brazil in order to be able to assess these measures as a part of integrated water resources management (IWRM). Additionally, a decision support platform will be developed to support strategic decisions regarding IWRM implementation. Knowledge transfer and dissemination of the project results will also take place via a web-based water resources information platform.
