Regional Knowledge Network on Water

The Nature & Water Knowledge Sharing Forum: Final Proceedings

Description

  • R-KNOW is a regional project co-funded by the European Union. The project aspires to create a Regional Knowledge Network on Water that will assist in strengthening the application of systematic approaches to water management and governance in five countries (Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, Morocco and Egypt).

    It also aims to influence policy and decision-making processes as means to enhance good governance in the water sector. As part of this initiative and partnership, four thematic areas have been selected (Climate Change, Sustainable Technologies, Governance and the Water Food Energy Nexus) to disseminate knowledge, lessons learnt and experiences.

    These themes were the focus of a regional forum that gathered more than 100 experts and practitioners from 15 different countries in the MENA region in Sharm el Shaikh, Egypt last May 12-14th, 2015.

    The forum also resulted in further stakeholder engagement, capacity building and knowledge sharing. It was also important to mention, that the forum helped in identifying the priorities of the Region to align a number of initiatives to achieve a future vision. 

    Key recommendations have been compiled in this regional report. This report comes as part of the Regional Knowledge Network on Water (R-KNOW) and is funded by the European Union and the MAVA foundation.
