News Farewell to EMPOWERS & a Welcome to the ETG

EMPOWERS (Euro-Med Participatory Water Resources Scenarios), a four-year EU-funded regional programme working in Egypt, Jordan and West Bank and Gaza, officially ended on 31 August, 2007. It was one of ten projects belonging to the MEDA Water Programme.

Due to the success of the project in achieving integrated water resource development and management at both the community and district level, several EMPOWERS Partners have decided to form the EMPOWERS Thematic Group (ETG) to build on and continue developing the methodologies and tools that were developed from 2003-2007 by the original project.

The ETG will be launching its new website shortly, to which all the content of the existing EMPOWERS website will be transferred.
