The REC held the national workshop “Water Resources Management in a Changing Climate” on September 29 and 30, 2016, in Gammarth, Tunisia.
The workshop was organised in the framework of the WATER SUM project’s WATER POrT component and brought together national- and regional-level representatives from various technical sectors of the Tunisian Ministry of Agriculture, Hydraulic Resources and Fisheries, as well as researchers, professionals and experts dealing with water and climate change issues within other Tunisian institutions.
The workshop’s first session provided an overview of climate change issues in Tunisia, with a closer focus on recent climate trends, as well as a summary of the country’s National Report on Climate Change. The following session introduced the Task Force on Climate Change, a body set up within the Ministry of Agriculture, Hydraulic Resources and Fisheries that pulls together representatives from the ministry’s different units to act as a single reference body for all matters related to climate change.
