Event MED JP Working Group on Shared Water Resources Management Inception Meeting

At the Athens Conference, Phase II of Med JP was agreed by the Water Directors, the establishment of a new Working Group on Shared Water Resources Management. The overall objective of the Working Group on Shared Water Resources Management is to promote synergies between competent EU and non EU partners of the Mediterranean and SEE region and to assist for a common approach on key aspects of joint management of shared surface and ground water resources. Interested persons are invited to join the Working Group and contribute to its deliberations by contacting the GWP-Med Secretariat. Already at the Athens Conference membership to the Group has been requested by representatives of certain governments and organisations.

The Inception Meeting of the Working Group will take place on 17 January 2007, from 09.30 am to 16.00 pm, at the GWP-Med premises (Kyrristou 12, Plaka), in Athens. It is planned as a brainstorming meeting that will elaborate on a work plan, active contributions from participants and time-schedule of the Working Group.

Participation in the Working Group activities is supported directly by its Members. However, financial support by the organisers for a limited number of participants of the Inception Meeting could be considered.
