News EGYPT: €2.3 million from Italy for water management training

A training program in water resources management will be launched soon in Egypt. The initiative, which involves technicians from the Egyptian Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation, will be implemented with funding from Italy. The grant of 2.3 million euros will help build the capacity of Egyptian experts in an integrated approach to water resources management, at a time when the country of the pharaohs is seeing its water reserves diminish drastically due to drought.

The objective is to increase the efficiency of these technicians in the field. The Regional Training Center of the Egyptian Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation and the Ciheam Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Bari will implement the training program. A module of the program will be mainly dedicated to the sharing of experience and knowledge between Egyptian and Italian experts, especially on water management techniques. Italy is currently experiencing one of the worst droughts in its history with 40% of its agricultural production devastated in the north.
