CREM : Regional cooperation in the water sector in the Maghreb

Maghreb

Titre : CREM : Regional cooperation in the water sector in the Maghreb

Région : Maghreb Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia

Durée : 2013 to 2015

Commissioned by : German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)

Agence d’exécution : Sahara and Sahel Observatory (OSS)

Contexte
The water resources available in the Maghreb are scarcely sufficient to meet the rising demand resulting from population growth, higher agricultural production, increasing industrial use and tourism. Since many countries in the region have already exhausted their potential for new water resources, the North African countries are now seeking to try new approaches and have committed to introducing integrated water resource management (IWRM).

Objectif
The capacity, resources and efficiency of the specialised institutions responsible for sustainable water resource management in the Maghreb are enhanced. They use methods developed and experience gained in the region to implement integrated water resource management.

Activité
The regional project is being implemented in collaboration with the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR). The political partners are the Sahara and Sahel Observatory (OSS) and the Arab Maghreb Union (UMA).
GIZ is responsible for three core areas : 1.development of a knowledge management system to enable the three partner countries to share knowledge about IWRM ; 2.development of an inter-institutional system to enable communication among the three partner countries ; 3.documentation and dissemination of experience and methods for implementing IWRM in the partner countries.
