Coping with Water Scarcity under Changing Climate Conditions // Best Practices and Innovations on Trial

A collection of 15 case studies from the MENA region by GIZ and the Mediterranean Environmental Network (MEN), based either on their success – then called a ‘Best Practice’ – or on their inspiring, innovative ideas, called an ‘Innovation on Trial’. These include projects that try to open doors to neighbouring domains and master the complex interdependencies in order to maximise resource efficiencies, human securities and minimise trade-offs.
