Conclusion and closing session

Jaime & Maroua

Most wetlands in the Mediterranean basin are at low altitudes and are predominantly coastal with a number of large river deltas (Camargue at Rhone delta in France, the Po delta in Italy, the Ebro delta in Spain, the Nestos delta in Greece, the Evros delta on the border between Greece and Turkey, the Menderes delta in Western Turkey, the Medjerda delta in Tunisia and, the Nile delta in Egypt). These ecosystems provides a wide range of services (fresh water, food, recreactional, flood protection, biodiversity) but are in great danger due to human activities as well as climate change. This session will present different cases of ecosystems restoration or artificial developments as Nature Based Solutions for water resources management in Mediterrenean countries, as well as an inovative moniroting tool (that can support SDG6.6 reporitng) and will feature a round-table on the governance structures to ensure the success of ecosystem management at river basin level.
