Integrated Water Management
Cyprus, 11-13 May, 2001

First Announcement

The Agricultural Research Institute (A.R.I.), Nicosia, Cyprus, has been recently selected by the European Union as a "Centre of Excellence in Agriculture and Environment". Within the framework of this project the EU is supporting the establishment of a network aimed at promoting the effective and sustainable management of the scarce water resources in the Euro-Mediterranean region.

To promote the network, a consultation meeting of related scientists from the EU-Mediterranean countries, other EU countries and pre-accession states will take place in Cyprus between 11-13 May, 2001. During the first two days of the meeting the following main aspects on water resources will be discussed:

Introduction to the topics will be covered by invited participants. The presentation will be limited between 20 and 30 minutes, followed by discussion for 30 to 45 minutes.

During the meeting guidelines will be provided for the collection of data and formation of a Data Bank. Contact persons from each participating country will be appointed with a main task to provide the relevant information from their countries.

The third day will be devoted to visit governmental water works supplying water either for irrigation and/or domestic purposes and nearby interesting archaeological sites.

The international travel, hotel accommodation (full board) and travelling within Cyprus will be covered by the Agricultural Research Institute. The available funds could cover the expenses of 30-35 participants.
