Event 3rd Regional Workshop on Water and Sustainable Development in The Mediterranean: Monitoring progress and promotion of water demand management policies

Plan Bleu announced the 3rd regional workshop on "Water demand management (WDM) in the Mediterranean, progress and policies" that it was tasked with organising, jointly with its partners, under the aegis of the Mediterranean Commission on Sustainable Development. This workshop is a continuation of those organised in Fréjus (1997) and Fiuggi (2002). It will take place in Saragossa (Spain), 19, 20 & 21 March 2007. Between 50 and 100 participants are likely to attend (professional and local experts - companies, local authorities, farmers, protected area managers, NGOs -, technical institute and university experts, experts from specialized Mediterranean networks in the fields of water, agriculture, urban settlements, industry, the environment, experts from financing and co-operation agencies). The workshop will be based on the presentation of national reports carried out in the voluntary countries, regional studies & papers. The local & national studies will aim to document concrete examples of good practices and to measure the progress actually made over the last years in terms of WDM in the main sectors of use (agricultural water, drinking water, industrial water), factoring natural water needs for the ecosystems into policies and factoraing WDM into water and cooperation policies. See the provisional programme.
