The Regional Workshop on Water Resources and Demand Management in a Changing Climate took place from March 28 to 30, 2017, in Djerba, Tunisia.
The workshop provided an opportunity for the WATER SUM project team, participants and beneficiaries to take stock of all the activities performed so far, and to contribute with essential inputs to the progress and finalisation of a number of key project deliverables. It also represented the culmination of a series of national-level workshops and trainings dedicated to Action 1.1 – Water Demand Management and to Action 3 Water Resources Management In A Changing Climate that have taken place within the frame of the WATER POrT project component of WATER SUM since the beginning of 2016. The workshop was also presented an opportunity to strengthen dialogue and cooperation, as set forth in Action 2 of WATER POrT.
Over 70 participants from Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Tunisia worked together over the three days to address challenges and to propose solutions that cut across integrated water resources management (IMWR), water demand management, and climate change. The participants juggled between plenary sessions and topic-based sessions, learned from experiences from other countries, and exchanged knowledge and lessons learned.
