1st WASSERMed Workshop

Workshop on water-related security threats in the Merguellil catchment. Tunisia

INAT, 1-2 June 2010

The “Workshop on water-related security threats in the Merguellil catchment, Tunisia” is the first of a series of Stakeholder Workshops that will be organized by the WASSERMed project in 5 Case Studies areas of the Mediterranean Region.

WASSERMed is a collaborative research project, funded by the European Union, and addressing the “Environment, including Climate Change” priority. WASSERMed will build on existing climate projections to address present and future uncertainties in hydrological budgets in the Mediterranean area. The overall approach entails high level interdisciplinary research, combining climatic and hydrologic scenario building, water system modelling and macroeconomic analysis. Emphasis is placed on the most significant and at-risk sectors, namely agriculture and tourism, in order to assess impacts and propose technological solutions and management practices toward their mitigation. Activities undertaken at the case-study level further seek to develop an in-depth analysis of water systems, integrating scientific research and stakeholder engagement processes. The main goal is to gain insight on climate change adaptation measures and strategies, within the frame of alleviating potential water-related security threats.
The “Workshop on water-related security threats in the Merguellil catchment, Tunisia” is the first step in this process, which was officially launched on January 1st 2010 and spans a 3-year duration.

The objectives of the Tunisia event are to:

  • Introduce WASSERMed and the scope of its research to local stakeholders;
  • Foster the exchange of view on the impacts of climate change that may affect water-related security threats in the Merguellil catchment,
  • Promote information sharing on factors that may increase the vulnerability of the Merguellil water system, and on local water management efforts and initiatives for their mitigation.
