Water Quality Monitoring (JP)
Water monitroing network working group of the Phase II of the Med Joint
Process between the EUWI and the Water Framework Directive.
In 2005 EMWIS conducted a survey on the value of some concepts of the European Union (EU) Water Framework Directive (WFD) for Mediterranean partner countries (MPC). Water Directors as well as basin organisations were surveyed. The two first concepts of interest are the characterization of basins and the monitoring activities. This underlines strong willingness and needs in terms of acquiring a better knowledge on river basins within MPC. That preliminary step is crucial before ongoing the works of planning. Generally, this survey shows a lack of awareness on WFD by MPC, but also a strong interest on the follow up of its implementation in EU Member States.
At the Euro-Med Water Directors meeting held in Athens in November 2006, countries expressed an interest to launch a working group on ‘Water Monitoring’ in the framework of the JP phase II. EMWIS has the leadership of this working group.
The specific objectives, work plan, timetable, membership etc. are under development.
