In the framework of the Mediterranean Water Knowledge Platform, EMWIS and the International Office for Water (IOWater) are organising a training workshop from 14 to 16 June 2017 in Sophia Antipolis (near Nice, France). Representatives from Albania, Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Mauritania, Morocco, Tunisia and Turkey will take part in this workshop. A particular attention will be given to SINEAU, the Tunisian National Water Information System (NWIS) that was delivered last December. The workshop is organised thanks to the support of the French Ministry in charge of Environment for the Mediterranean Water Knowledge Platform, as one initiative contribution to Climate Change Adaptation.
The Mediterranean Water Knowledge Platform received the label of the 43 countries of the Union for the Mediterranean in 2014. It aims to provide a common basis for the development of National Water Information Systems (NWIS) and to deliver an assessment of water resources management and use (drafting of a White Paper) by exploiting data from the NWIS. The project has been promoted as a tool for the adaptation of the water sector to climate change at the last COP in Marrakech.
Another workshop focusing on exchange of experiences and financing NWIS, will be organised after summer with the secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean
