Event UfM Water Task Forces on Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystems Nexus (4th Meeting) & Water-Employment-Migration (5th Meeting)

The Meeting will be held online on Thursday, 23rd July 2020 (between 13:30-15:30 CET) and will be co-chaired by Lebanon, Italy and Turkey. It will be facilitated by UfMS, with technical inputs and assistance by GWP-Med, and supported by Sida.

The online Meeting, which will have English/French simultaneous interpretation available, has the following threefold objective:

  1. Present and discuss the document 'UfM Framework Programmes for Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystems Nexus & Water-Employment-Migration: Note on Synergetic Actions', as well as elements of its implementation;
  2. Share initial suggestions for the UfM WEFE Nexus and WEM Work Plan(s) 2020-2022 and receive guidance by TF Members and feedback by regional partners;
  3. Present related on-going and up-coming WEFE Nexus and WEM activities in the Mediterranean, including by outlining possible operational synergies with the related UfM Water Agenda at regional, sub-regional and national level.

The purpose of combining the two Task Forces' meetings is to jointly identify priorities of the WEFE Nexus and WEM Work Plans 2020-2022 as well as to further guide on the synergetic actions of the related Thematic Framework Programmes. The outcomes of these should assist UfM Member States towards meeting water-related socio-economic challenges, promoting climate resilience responses while assisting women and youth towards job creation as a contribution for improving livelihoods and tackling migration impacts.
