Integrated Water Resources Management: MENA Regional Course

October 2006 to November 2006
The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region belongs to the most water-scarce areas in the world. The problems associated with natural resource scarcity have been aggravated over the last years by the increase in water demands and resource pollution as a result of population growth, urbanisation and industrialisation. An integrated concept to manage the available water resources is required to respond to this situation. Against this background, the World Bank Institute (WBI) and InWent – Capacity Building International, Germany, acting on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), and in cooperation with the Regional Center for Training and Water Studies (RCTWS), organised the capacity-building workshop “Integrated Water Resources Management: MENA Regional Course”. The workshop took place from October, 29 to November, 2, 2006, in Cairo, Egypt. Read more

While a growing population has long been understood as a threat to the environment, it is now clear that a shrinking population does not automatically improve the environmental situation. "The Bottom Line", edited by Volker Hauff and Günther Bachmann, with contributions from Ecologic and the Berlin-Institute, examines the assets and debts of Germany‘s future inheritance. Read more
