The Regional Workshop on Water Resources and Demand Management in a Changing Climate will take place on March 28-30, 2017, in Djerba, Tunisia. The evant is organised within the framework of the regional project "Sustainable Use of Transboundary Water Resources and Water Security Management" (WaterSUM) project, which is financially supported by the Government of Sweden, through the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
The Regional Workshop will combine sessions dedicated to Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) and to Adaptation to Climate Change, which are two of the themes underpinning the WATER POrT project component of WaterSUM.
The main objectives of the workshop include:
- sharing good practices of WDM among policy makers, water authorities, other experts and stakeholders within the MENA region;
- promoting discussions on what works, what doesn't work, and which prerequisites are needed for successful WDM measures; and
- gathering feedback from Jordanian and Tunisian counterparts on their experience with the WDM project component, and on future needs in terms of expertise and capacity building.
