    In many regions of the world, including the NENA region and Lebanon, sustainable and reliable delivery of water for irrigation and municipal use has become increasingly complex and problematic. This issue also extends to affect the protection of the ecosystems from water pollution. Particularly, if the overall demand is outstripping supply, the delivery of water is often less about engineering, although it is still required. The issue is more often related to the governance of the resources, to manage and protect sources from pollution and over-abstraction, resolve conflicts about water, and ensure rights to water are respected. It is also about understanding water flow pathways in complex river basin systems. This is where water monitoring and accounting can play a crucial role to help water management institutions, such as the regional Water Establishments, in managing complexity in light of the challenges facing the water sector. In this context, FAO, in collaboration with the North Lebanon Water Establishment (NLWE), which represents the Ministry of Water and Energy, is implementing the GCP/LEB/029/SWI project “Improved Water Resources Monitoring System/Integrated Water Resources Management at regional level in Lebanon”, funded by the Swiss Government. The main objective of the project is to strengthen Lebanon’s water institutions improving their performance at regional level, thereby helping them to address the sector challenges for sustainable use of water resources.

    In many areas of the world, including the Near East and North Africa (NENA) region and Lebanon, sustainable and reliable delivery of water for irrigation and municipal use has become increasingly complex. This issue also extends to affect the protection of the ecosystems from water pollution. Particularly, if the overall demand is outstripping supply, the delivery of water is often less about engineering, although it is still required. The issue is more often related to the governance of the resources to manage and protect them from pollution and over-abstraction, resolve conflicts over water, and ensure rights to water are respected. It is also about understanding water flow pathways in complex river basin systems. This is where water monitoring and accounting can play a crucial role to help water management institutions in managing complexity in light of the challenges facing the water sector. In this context, FAO, in collaboration with the North Lebanon Water Establishment (NLWE), which represents the Ministry of Water and Energy, is implementing the GCP/LEB/029/SWI project ‘Improved Water Resources Monitoring System/Integrated Water Resources Management at regional level in Lebanon’, funded by the Swiss Government. The main objective of the project is to strengthen Lebanon’s water institutions improving their performance at regional level. In particular, Output (4) of the project ‘Water accounting tool’, aims at supporting more effective decision-making at regional level by generating information regarding the vegetation state, leaf area index, biomass production, evapotranspiration (ET) mapping, through remote sensing.

In particular, Output (2) of the project, “Established water quality monitoring at key locations within a pilot watershed”, aims at supporting improved management of environmental priorities at water establishment/watershed level.
