Promoting an integrated and inter-sectoral approach to water management in the Mediterranean region

24 October 2019

Salle XII, Palais des Nations, Geneva, Switzerland

The event highlighted common priorities of actions under the UfM Water Agenda of the UfM Water Policy Framework for Actions 2030 and the 2019-2021 programme of work of the Water Convention. It provided an opportunity to discuss the synergies and complementarity of activities implemented under both frameworks, as well as the possible benefits of joining efforts for implementing such activities, also enabling the UfM Secretariat to promote transboundary water cooperation in the region.

The event offered a forum for a more focused discussion on progress of activities carried out in the Mediterranean region under both frameworks on the thematic area “Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystems Nexus”. It facilitated an exchange of experiences among countries from the region on possible “Nexus solutions” to be implemented through synergetic, inter-sectoral action to generate benefits across sectors and countries.

The event was jointly organized by the UfM and Water Convention secretariats. It was held back-to-back with the 14th meeting of the Working Group on Integrated Water Resources Management (22-24 October 2019).
