POrTal – Issue 2
This second issue of the WATER POrT newsletter opens with statements by ministers responsible for water-related issues in Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia, in which they outline current challenges in the water sector and describe the benefits of the WATER SUM project. Page 2 presents a profile of one of the project demonstration sites in Egypt — the Rosetta branch of the Nile — which provides water to meet domestic and agricultural demand. Key messages from recent workshops and training events are summarised on page 3, which also features a round-up of WATER SUM input to World Water Week 2016, which took place between August 28 and September 2 in Stockholm. The newsletter closes with the results of the recent WATER SUM photo competition, a list of upcoming events, and an invitation to be part of the WATER POrT online forum.
