3rd PAWA workshop, Rome
The third Workshop of the PAWA Project "Pilot Arno Water Accounts" was organised in Rome on 1 December 2014. This project is funded by the European Commission / DG Environment for a pilot action on the Arno river basin for the calculation of the water balance according to the international System for Economical Environmental Accounting for water (UN SEEA-Water) with a monthly time range and at sub-river basin level.
The first results obtained within the project PAWA were presented to all the National, Regional and Interregional Basin Authority of Italy. The workshop was opened by Bernardo DE BERNARDINIS, the President of ISPRA (the Italian Agency for Environmental Protection and Research), who stressed the importance of this pilot initiative and its willingness to implement this approached in other Italian river districts.
The Italian Basin Authorities also presented their activities related to the water balance and in conclusion a round table allowed to share the lessons learnt from initiatives that have been developed at European, national and local level. The current phase of the PAWA project is related to support the optimal selection of measures to fight against water scarcity for future integration in the river basin management plan.
