The local environmental NGO Nature Trust Malta (NTM) will be implementing the educational component associated with the program. The programme will include the installation and repair of rainwater harvesting systems and non-conventional water systems, educational tools, as well as capacity-building workshops and an educational campaign This program will result in the collection and reuse of around 4-5 million litres of rainwater each year.
The capacity of the island of Gozo to harvest rainwater will rise dramatically as a consequence of this project and a number of other eco-Gozo projects.
