News CIRCLE-2 MEDiterranean Project Outreach Seminar in Morocco

The CIRCLE-2 MED sub-network hosted its first Project Outreach Seminar outside Europe. Held at the Scientific Institute of Rabat - University Mohammed V-Agdal in Rabat, Morroco, on the 14th December 2010, the Seminar was dedicated to "Integrated water management in coastal areas and climate change in the Mediterranean: North-South scientific cooperation".

Moroccan research teams have been involved in four of the eight CIRCLE-2 MED funded projects  (AQUIMED, CLIMWAT, MEDCODYN and WATERKNOW). This seminar intends to showcase and promote the outcomes of these projects by involving researchers and stakeholders in that country. The need for the science-policy dialogue was stressed by all participants who expressed the wish to further develop the links created during these projects. The policy-makers were grateful for this initiative and asked for an early involvement in future projects.

The Seminar was co-organised by the French Ministry for Ecology, Energy Sustainable Development, Transport and housing (MEDDTL) and the Moroccan Kingdom's Office of the High Commissioner for Water, Forests and the Fight Against Desertification (HCEFLCD).
