Dr. Pasquale Steduto, FAO Regional Strategic Programmes Coordinator for the Near East and North Africa (NENA) will present the FAO NENA Water Scarcity Initiative, that provides a comprehensive framework to ensure the sustainable use and preservation of scarce water resources. While the briefing focuses on the experience of countries of Western Asia and North Africa, findings are applicable and relevant for all countries facing water scarcity, thus will provide a platform for sharing knowledge and showcase examples from other regions as well.
