    FAO Water Scarcity - Regional Initiative in the Near East - Concept note 2013
    Also available in:

    The Near East and North Africa Region (NENA) faces the challenges of addressing a wide range of complex and intertwined issues associated with the management of natural resources, particularly land and water, and securing food supply for a growing population. To address these challenges, FAO has launched a Regional Initiative on Water Scarcity in the Near East. The overall goal of the initiative is to support member countries in identifying and streamlining policies and best practices in agricul ture water management, and beyond, that can significantly contribute to boosting agriculture productivity, improving food security and sustaining water resources. The initiative will identify critical areas that require action, assist in the formulation of a regional collaborative strategy and build broad partnerships to support its implementation.

Working groups were formed to encourage maximum participation in the Workshop. A review of the major IUU fishing problems in the region and their possible solutions were discussed. Funding for the Workshop was provided by the FAO Regular Programme with support from the FishC ode Programme through component project GCP/INT/849/USA, “Support for Implementation of the International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing”.
