Folder EMWIS Sessions at the 6th World Water Forum

During the next World Water Forum to be held in Marseille from 12 to 17 March 2012, EMWIS is led 3 sessions, one the thematic process, one on the Mediterranean process and a side event:

 1. Side Event: "Shared Water Information Systems for a Better Governance in the Mediterranean"
Tuesday 13 March 2012, from 13:15 to 14:15  - Room: PEu 1 - Europa 1 > Palais de l'Europe

In the water sector, access to reliable information is a major challenge for a transparent and efficient governance. A national water data collection and monitoring system is an essential element in order to provide reliable background for defining, implementing and evaluating each country’s water policies and investments linked to clear and shared objectives. Improving institutional cooperation and implementing jointly agreed standads are the main challenges. EMWIS have been working with all Mediterranean countries since 2005 on sharing knowledge on data management. A new momentum has been reached thanks to the Union for the Mediterranean Ministerial recommendations for data, information and statistics on water, based on internationally agreed definitions and methods, structured within information systems. The commitments to be discussed are directly linked to the governance targets of the Mediterranean Process, as well as the information monitoring and sharing of the thematic process “cooperation and peace”.

2. MED 4.2 Sustainable cost recovery (SCR) for sanitation services: under the Mediterranean Cross Continental Process, Priority 4: Urban and Industrial Wastewater collection and treatment
Wednesday 14 March - 8:30 / 10:30 - Room: PEu1 Europa 1 Palais de l’Europe

By 2015, each Mediterranean country has defined a strategy of sustainable cost recovery (SCR) for sanitation services through the use of tariffs and fees, public subsidies and international financial assistance to ensure economical sustainability, equitable access for all and pollution control.

3. PfA 1.5.7 Contribute to Cooperation and Peace through water: Sharing and monitoring information at the transboundary level for sustainable water management 
Thursday
15 March 2012, from 14:30 to 16:30 - Room: PEu 3 - Europa 3 > Palais de l'Europe

The success of cooperation policies in the water sector depends on the use of efficient governance tools where transparency and confidence in access to information on the status of water resources and their use is fundamental. The establishment of information systems to support sound management of water resources and transboundary cooperation is not easy, data are often widely distributed, of inconsistent quality and collected for a range of different purposes, at different spatial and time scales. This session will demonstrate solutions already implemented and other still emerging to support the cooperation between riparian countries sharing the same water resources. It will also discuss the commitment necessary to move towards an open data behaviour within the water community worldwide.
