The concept behind MELIA (Mediterranean Dialogue on Integrated Water Resource Management) is to disseminate existing information on water issues, particularly related to the implementation of the Water Framework Directive of the EU in a Mediterranean context.  The main legacy of the project, which is nearing the end of its 5-year term, will be a web-based platform hosting water-related documentation from almost all the Mediterranean countries.  The aim of this half-day seminar is to introduce the project’s web-platform to University students and NGO’s interested in the subject of the water resource. The seminar is being held on the 20th May 2011, between 2.00 and 6.00 pm in Gateway Hall D2 at the University of Malta.

The target audience for this seminar includes students from both Divisions of the Institute of Earth Systems as well as from other faculties/institutes/departments with an interest in the politics/environmental importance/protection of the water resource, and members of NGOs interested or directly involved in protecting water resources.

For further information and to register for this seminar, please contact Ms Marie Louise Zammit at the Division of Rural Sciences and Food Systems.
