News Towards a Mediterranean Water Information Mechanism compatible with the Water Information System for Europe (WISE)

This new project led by EMWIS Technical Unit for the next 18 months and co-financed by the DG Environment of the European Commission. This project is based on a strong synergy with the European Environment Agency (EEA) for drafting guidelines for setting up National water information systems compatible with WISE in Med Partner Countries and collecting data to support the Med Joint Process working groups on "water scarcity and drought" and "water monitoring".

The objective of this project is to prepare a Mediterranean information mechanism on water which is compatible with the Water Information System for Europe -WISE- and that will support the Med Joint Process between the EU Water Initiative and the Water Framework Directive. This mechanism will stream line the access to quality data related to water in the Mediterranean Partners Country (MPC).
