Water resources in Mediterranean countries are limited and unequally distributed. Thirty million people in these countries lack access to safe drinking water, especially in the south and east countries. The main objective of the WATMED5 conference is to create a forum for exchange and debate on the knowledge of water topics and to bring the actors of the water field (researchers, professionals, managers, communities, associations and others) to discuss the challenges encountered in the management and protection of water resources in the Mediterranean Basin.

The MSc IWRM: A bi-cultural Master program

Submitted by Celine Dondeynaz on 17 February, 2010 - 17:28

Water resources, indispensable basis for development, food, and health, become ever scarcer and more polluted.

The concept of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) offers solutions to the water crisis in linking water to other vital resources and viewing the whole water cycle together with human interventions as the basis for sustainable water management. As it is a relatively new concept there is a high demand for experts adequately trained in the concept of IWRM. Next to the technical and managerial knowledge related to water resources these experts should also have knowledge of the practices of project funding and international cooperation.

For bilateral projects between Germany and Arab countries there is a need for experts being familiar with the culture, language and politics of both sides and are skilled in intercultural communication.
