About the Project
The candidate will engage with key policy, industry, consumer, and regulatory stakeholders to better understand the critical drivers for and barriers to reuse including identifying prospective end-users, and stakeholders involved in current Scottish reuse initiatives and pilots. Once identified, relevant stakeholders will be drawn into further engagement, through semi-structured interviews, focus groups, stakeholder workshops and a Living Lab to explore the potential for the reuse of water within Scotland. An opportunity mapping exercise using GIS tools, secondary data, and drawing on stakeholder input will match potential resources with end-uses which may include golf course or municipal space irrigation, industrial processes, construction, domestic uses, agricultural processes etc. Participatory mapping techniques including the use of digital interactive TouchTable technology will be utilised to support stakeholder mapping. The candidate will explore international cases that can inform Scotland’s reuse trajectory through secondary data analysis and through an international study visit (for example Murcia, Spain). The goal is for an open and accessible stakeholder engagement that will help to stimulate a national debate.
