The present publication has been produced in the framework of the project New Technologies (ICT) for an integrated and sustainable management of natural resources in Lebanon (referred to as "ICT project") funded by the Italian Development Cooperation (Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation).
The present publication is based, on one hand, on the results of the ICT project funded by the Italian Development Cooperation (Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation) through the University of Insubria, and on the other hand, on the data and accumulated experience of hydro-diplomacy efforts. It thus brings together two approaches: first a crisp analysis of the evolution in addressing the water challenges applying technological tools on basin management, and secondly, a pragmatic one, based on a case study dealing with water resources in the Middle East.
The 5th International Yellow River Forum, the 5-day water conference, will be held during September 24-28, 2012 under the theme ensuring water right of the river's demand and healthy river basin maintenance. The forum consists of five themes, i.e. Integrated River Basin Management, River Health and Environmental Flow, Climate Change Adaptation, Tools and Technology and Water Governance, in addition to Feature Sessions co-organized with various strategic partners. The forum will also witness high level dialogue and cooperation roundtable meetings, particularly the Water Leader Summit and River Dialogue. This forum will also showcase research and technology development of water resources management through Posters and Exhibitions, and technical visits and social events will also be a part of the river's forum.
