The final workshop of the project for the development and implementation of a national information system on water in Tunisia "SINEAU" was held in Tunis on December 29, 2016. About 100 people attended the event organized by the Ministry of Agriculture, Water Resources and Fisheries – Tunisia and the African Water Facility. On one hand, the Secretary of State for Hydraulics and Fisheries opened the session with a speech encouraging the establishment of information systems in all water related directorates and agencies in Tunisia in order to build a complete information system that will contribute to integrated water resources management. On the other hand, the representative of the African Water Facility affirmed that the project was a success and that the other African countries must be inspired and could follow the Tunisian example.  He said also that it is necessary to ensure the sustainability of the system. At the end of the session the project coordinator said that SINEAU will soon restart with a new phase and will integrate other components (sanitation, drinking water, hydroelectricity ...). SINEAU is now the first operational national system contributing to the Mediterranean Water Knowledge Platform, the initiative labeled by UfM.
