BeWater raises awareness in Tunisian primary schools on water scarcity and the importance of water saving 

Awareness Tunisia

As a follow-up to its involvement with youth stakeholders in the Rmel River Basin in the Tunisian Province of Zaghouan, the BeWater partners GWP-Med and INRGREF, in cooperation with the NGO The Lions' Club, are developing a national campaign in Tunisian primary schools to raise awareness on water scarcity and the importance of water saving.

 

The campaign will take place during the month of February 2016 and is called ÔVI (eau = water, vie = life). It takes place within the framework of the activity La Jeunesse Francophone pour l'eau (Francophone Youth for Water).

 

The campaign is taking place as a follow-up action to the national training for Tunisian NGOs that are active in water resources management, which was held on 13-14 November 2015.

Policy brief

The first BeWater Policy Brief highlights the need to develop river basin adaptation plans to deal with climate change and the role of local stakeholders to develop successful adaptation strategies. It is available for download in English, Catalan, French, Arabic, and Slovenian.

In the Mediterranean region, water resources are expected to be severely impacted by climate change. The resulting decrease in water supplies needs to be considered to ensure the sustainable supply and use of high quality water resources in the future. Current water management initiatives give insufficient consideration to climate change at the river basin level.

The BeWater project addresses this gap and is developing adaptation plans to pro-actively respond to water-related global challenges at the river basin level through a dialogue between science and society. The first BeWater Policy Brief highlights the role of local stakeholders to develop successful adaptation strategies, which must be applicable across multiple policy sectors.
