3rd Mediterranean Water Forum

Cairo 23rd-24th January 2018

The Mediterranean Water Forum, instituted in 2011 in Marrakech, became an efficient platform for dialogue and exchange between all regional stakeholders, which aim at strengthening the cooperation and exchange of knowledge and experience in the field of water.

The event, part of the World Water Forum, involves countless Mediterranean water stakeholders and it will be organised through a regional event. In fact, the 3rd edition is foreseen for the beginning of the 2018, before the 8th World Water Forum.
The Mediterranean event is structured in 6 topics: issues like: management and rehabilitation of ecosystems for water services and biodiversity, water for energy, water and mitigation of the effects of climate change, sanitation for all, technologies for the water treatment and reuse and, last but not least, financial resources for sustainable development. IEA Foundation, one of the CASTWATER partners, has been selected to co-pilot one of the first of them namely: “Ecosystems: Managing and restoring for water services and biodiversity”.

Main steps have been done for the 8th World Water Forum preparation, and the 3rd edition of Mediterranean Water Forum will be one of them.
The event will gather the Mediterranean Water Community to discuss and debate topics closely linked with the Mediterranean preparatory process for the 8th World Water Forum.
