WASAMED is a Thematic Network founded by the European Commission with the objective to establish a platform for effective Mediterranean dialogue on water saving in agriculture, contributing to improved management of limited water resources and sustainable development in the Mediterranean Region. The Network, coordinated by CIHEAM-Bari Institute, includes 42 partners from Universities, research centres decision and policy-making institutions and end-users associations from 16 countries (Algeria, Cyprus, Egypt, Germany, Greece, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Malta, Morocco, Palestine, Portugal, Spain, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey). In line with its main objective and working plan, WASAMED had already organised five Euro- Mediterranean Workshops, respectively, on “Participatory Water Saving and Water Cultural Heritage” (Sanliurfa, Turkey, December 2003), “Irrigation System Performance” (Hammamet, Tunisia, June 2004), “Non-conventional Water Management” (Cairo, Egypt, December 2004), “Water Use Efficiency and Water Productivity” (Amman, Jordan, September 2005) and “Harmonisation and Integration of Water Saving Options” (Malta, May 2006).
The Conference aims to bring together all relevant local and regional key-actors and scientists in order to discuss and identify the priorities in research to support national and regional strategies on water saving in the Mediterranean
