WADI: Sustainable management of Mediterranean fresh and transitional water bodies: a socioeconomic and environmental analysis of changes and trends to enhance and sustain stakeholder benefits

EU Sixth Framework Programme, INCO-CT2005-015226, 2005-2008

The WADI project built on experience garnered through the previous MECO and MEDCORE projects, and focused on using interdisciplinary science to provide benefits for local stakeholders. The objectives of the WADI project included fostering the rational and sustainable use of freshwater resources in Mediterranean coastal areas, identifying stakeholder conflicts, identifying and assessing impacts of water uses, and developing holistic scientific inputs for participatory water management.  The project adopted a strategy of bottom-up participatory approaches, across a range of spatial and temporal scales.

The WADI project was coordinated by the University of Florence and brought together eleven partners from Portugal, Spain, Italy, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and Malta. The International Environment Institute held overall responsibility for the environmental management aspects of the project, and conducted research at study sites in Italy, Tunisia and Morocco.

The project’s final meeting was held in Malta in November 2008 and brought together over fifty delegates representing the eleven project partners from the seven participating countries, as well as a number of external experts who have provided advisory inputs since the project's inception and representatives of the European Union. Abstracts of the research presented at this meeting can be accessed here.

Further details of the WADI project can be accessed here or by contacting the Institute’s Division of Environmental Management and Planning.
