The 2nd Hamburg Water Forum for the EMA Region

Water is a core element for peace in many regions and its scarcity represents a global challenge, especially for the Arab countries. In view of the central significance of the set of problems concerning water for economy, society, environment and politics, the EMA has developed different forums to address the issues concerning this topic and to find common and practical solutions. In light of this and as a result of a highly successful Water Forum in 2010 as well as the equally successful Environment Forum for the EMA Region in 2011, the EMA has established itself as the leading association for the promotion of German-Arab cooperation in the sectors of water, environment/-al technologies and renewable energies. Currently, the EMA is organizing the 2nd Hamburg Water Forum for September 2012.
