This handbook contains 30 good practice examples that have been identified within the WATER SUM project. It is a valuable tool for identifying relevant experience in the fields of climate change, drought management, water demand management, and communication and participation. Examples of national and local projects have been collected not only from the Middle East and North Africa, but also from areas with similar hydrometeorological and climatic conditions, in order to provide a wider range of potential options and to showcase local actions and transboundary/international collaboration initiatives.
The handbook was prepared for the project “Sustainable Use of Transboundary Water Resources and Water Security Management” (WATER SUM), implemented by the REC with funding from the Government of Sweden.
