The workplan of the EU funded, Water and Environment Support project (WES), for the coming 12 months, was endorsed on December 14, 2021, during the online 3 WES Steering Committee Meeting (SCM). During the meeting, the project’s achievements and challenges were thoroughly discussed, and the forthcoming plan of activities was presented.
This SCM brought together the WES Water and Environment Focal Points from the Partner Countries (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia), the European Commission, institutional partners, representatives of WES Demonstration projects, the Union for the Mediterranean and the Mediterranean Action Plan/UNEP.
Mr. Stefano Dotto, Head of Sector Connectivity, Climate and Environment, European Commission, Directorate General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations (DG NEAR), in the opening of the meeting underlined the importance of EU projects such as WES: ‘WES guarantees regional cooperation and commitments building a consensus in addressing environmental problems, but most of all, it enhances a common culture for a sustainable and circular economy in the Mediterranean countries.’
