U.N. International Year of Freshwater 2003 set - Italy will host International Conference on Integrated Watershed Management
As a follow-up to the International Year of Mountains 2002 and a contribution to the International Year of Freshwater 2003, the Province of Sassari, Sardinia, Italy, has generously accepted to host/sponsor the International Conference on Integrated Watershed Management. The Conference is organised by the Province of Sassari, FAO and the European Observatory of Mountain Forests, in collaboration with: UNESCO, UNEP, World Bank, International Office for Water, Commissione Interministeriale per la Politica sull’Acqua nel Mediterraneo, European Union Task Force on Water, French Office National des Forêts, Institut de la Montagne, France.
It is generally accepted that sustainable use and management of land
resources can effectively been achieved by adopting an improved land,
water and ecosystem approach based on the integration of resources
and the direct involvement of the different actors at all level. In
this sense, considerable progress has been achieved in watershed management,
especially during the 1990-2000 period, where new approaches and methods
have been developed.
