To help water managers in countries around the Mediterranean sea and across the Arab world understand water availability and consumption using consistent measures and methods so that data can be compared across countries. This understanding will enable decision-makers to improve management of water resources, as well as land and vegetation and help them deal with water scarcity, droughts, floods and the uncertainties associated with climate change. The project will allow the Mediterranean basin and the Arab world to benefit from the latest technologies and techniques to help them reduce environmental degradation and better manage their scarce water resources.
