IN BRIEF (Full news)


2- UfM member states have jointly developed the UfM Water Agenda as a regional policy response to the high priority of water issues in the Mediterranean. In 2017 the UfM Ministerial Meeting on Water mandated the development of a regional Water Agenda and a companion Financial Strategy. The UfM Water Agenda is structured around four pillars: ensuring universal access to safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); increasing the climate-resilience of Mediterranean economies; supporting balanced development across the water-energy-food-environment nexus; and contributing to address social concerns, with a focus on employment and migration. The UfM Financial Strategy for Water lays out a menu of options to increase the financial sustainability of the Mediterranean water sector – including making the best use of existing financial resources, and mobilising additional financial resources. Each member state is responsible for adapting and implementing the regional agenda at the national level. Conclusions of EU-UfM water investment policy forum 25 October 2021.

3- Even more daunting survival-related challenges than presently obtain are likely to lie ahead for countries that are now battling with food security if the alarming picture of a continual loss of scarce resources, painted in a recently released Report by the United Nations Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) persists. The Report, made public in December, highlights what it says is the continual deterioration of the earth’s soil, land and water resources and the impact that this will have on feeding a global population that is likely to get close to 10 billion by year 2050. “The pressures on soil, land and water ecosystems are now intense, and many are stressed to a critical point,” FAO Director-General Qu Dongyu wrote in the foreword to the Synthesis Report, titled “The State of the World’s Land and Water Resources for Food and Agriculture – Systems at Breaking Point”. The FAO Director-General said that against this backdrop, “it is clear that our future food security will depend on safeguarding our land, soil and water resources,” in the period ahead.

8- Fiware4Water organises a cycle of monthly on-line workshops from January 2022 to April to present the key results of the project (ending in May 2022) on the uses of digital water solutions. The workshops will cover the technological, socio-political and citizen engagement as well as European policies dimensions. The workshops are structured in a way debates will take place after presentations made by the project’ experts and testimonies from our Demo Cases and Demo Networks. FIWARE is a smart solution platform, funded by the EC (2011-16) as a major flagship PPP, to support SMEs and developers in creating the next generation of internet services, as the main ecosystem for Smart City initiatives for cross-domain data exchange/cooperation and for the NGI initiative. So far little progress has been made on developing specific water-related applications using FIWARE, due to fragmentation of the water sector, restrained by licensed platforms and lagging behind other sectors (e.g. telecommunications) regarding interoperability, standardisation, cross-domain cooperation and data exchange. Fiware4Water intends to link the water sector to FIWARE by demonstrating its capabilities and the potential of its interoperable and standardised interfaces for both water sector end-users (cities, water utilities, water authorities, citizens and consumers), and solution providers (private utilities, SMEs, developers).

17- The European Environment Agency cooperates with a large number of countries, including those in the Western Balkans. How does this cooperation further the EU’s work on the environment and how does it benefit Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia and Kosovo? We sat down with Luc Bas, head of Coordination, Networks and Strategy Programme, to discuss how the EEA is working with these countries to improve the environment. Why are Western Balkan countries so important for the EEA? What is the added value of cooperating?
These countries are EU accession or pre-accession countries. In order to become a full EU member, a number of policies need to be put in place and the environmental field is one of the largest policy areas with a substantial package of legislation. Moreover, the Western Balkans are our neighbors and we all know the environment doesn’t stop at the border, so close cooperation on environmental issues is also in the EU’s interest. Lastly, as cooperating countries in the European Environmental Information and Observation Network (Eionet), the Western Balkans have access to a large pool of experts, helping them with the  environmental challenges they face. In return, experts from these countries contribute to the network with their know-how. The full article is available here. Further information on EMWIS website 

18- Sixteen per cent of Malta's groundwater volume is set to be lost in the next 80 years as a result of climate change, a study has found. The study was carried out by scientists from the Universities of Calabria and Malta. In Malta, it was led by Prof. Aaron Micallef. Three-dimensional geological and groundwater models were developed for the Maltese islands. Groundwater supplies almost half of the potable water in Malta, one of the poorest countries globally in terms of water resources, the study points out. Three predicted effects were considered on the impact on groundwater volume and saltwater intrusion simulated for 80 years: Reduction in precipitation; Increase in water demand; and Sea-level rise. Of these, water demand plays the most important role in reducing groundwater volume. Sea-level rise, on the other hand, only plays a marginal role. The study was funded by the European Commission, the University of Malta and the Helmholtz European Partnering Initiative. Further information on EMWIS website 

19- The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is improving access to irrigation water for more than 6,800 farmers and their families, with a 49 million euros loan to the Ministry of Agriculture, Hydraulic Resources and Fisheries in Tunisia. The funds will help to restore and rehabilitate the ageing water infrastructure serving 37 oases in the country’s southern governorates of Gabès, Gafsa, Kebili and Tozeur. The oases are the primary source of employment and income in the region, with irrigated agriculture providing jobs to 35 per cent of the working population. In addition, thanks to the support of the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), the project will include a programme focusing on enhancing economic opportunities for women and young people in the oases. Since the start of its operations in Tunisia in 2012, the EBRD has invested more than 1.3 billion euros across 55 projects in the country, in both the private and public sectors.

22-There are serious discussions between Cairo and Seoul to implement seawater desalination projects in addition to initial discussions for the use of green hydrogen in many industries,” according to South Korean Ambassador to Egypt Hong Jin-Wook.  Discussions also revolve around the operation of the Suez Canal locomotives with natural gas instead of the current use of petrochemicals. Hong said that his country cares about the environment and climate friendly industries, and it is likely to cooperate with Egypt in the field of manufacturing electric cars and exporting them abroad. He added that Egypt is in talks with China and the US in this regard as well. Hong’s remarks came during a press conference to announce the details of the South Korean President Moon Jae-In’s visit to Egypt, which is scheduled to be on 20 January as part of his three-country Middle Eastern tour that will begin with the UAE and Saudi Arabia. “According to Egypt’s 2030 Vision, the government aims to increase the use of renewable energy, which is the same as South Korea’s plans,” Hong said, stressing that this matter will help strengthen future cooperation between the two countries. He said that there are many Korean investments that export their products through Egypt to different countries, and this indicates the strength of the cooperative relations between the two sides.
