Managing water related information in support of WFD and IWRM implementation
SPI-Water project which is a Scientific Support Priority project of the European Commission, funded by DG RTD, with as main objective ‘Science-Policy Interfacing in support of the Water Framework Directive implementation’; will organise its final conference in Brussels (Belgium) next 30-31 October 2008. This conference aims to: Bridging the gap between scientific knowledge and water policy implementation, Presenting the enhanced WISE-RTD Web Portal as a tool for sharing water related research information and operational practices, and Facilitating the transfer of WFD and IWRM experiences. A unique insight will be provided in the future plans of the EC with respect to the Water Information System Europe (WISE), the use and role of WISE-RTD, the organization of IWRM support to non-EU countries, the twinning processes, etc.
The conference will close with a round table discussion on the availability, sharing and linking of water related information. The sustainability and safeguarding of the available European Water Management Information will be an important issue here.
