The EU-funded SWIM-H2020 Support Mechanism (Sustainable Water Integrated Management and Horizon 2020) organized its National Meeting yesterday in Israel focusing on sustainable water resources and a clean environment in the Mediterranean.

The objective of this meeting was to present what has been achieved so far and what still needs to be completed until April 2019, when the present phase of the Project will end.

The meeting was attended by the European Union Delegation to Israel, the representatives of the Government Authority for Water & Sewage and the Ministry of Environmental Protection, national agencies and international organizations active in Israel, and stakeholders from all sectors including academics, environmental NGOs and the media.

The SWIM-H2020 SM EU-funded Project aims to contribute to the sustainable use of scarce water resources and properly manage municipal waste, industrial emissions and waste water, and therefore enhance, directly and indirectly, resilience to climate variability and change in the entire region with emphasis on the countries of North Africa and the Middle East (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, [Syria] and Tunisia).
