DEVOTES-EUROMARINE Summer School: `Integrative assessment of marine systems: the Ecosystem Approach in practice´ from Jun 09, 2015 08:00 to Jun 11, 2015 06:00 San Sebastian, Spain, by Damaris Waigwa
This FP7 DEVOTES project course falls into the first scientific priority and emerging fields identified by the FP7 EuroMarine programme (Understanding marine ecosystems for healthy oceans). The attendees will acquire new knowledge on recent trends in marine research, related to management of our oceans. This course will explore the potential and recent advances in the integrative assessment of marine systems (based upon strong new monitoring tools, such as genomics), including the various ecosystem components (from plankton to marine mammals), at different scales (from water bodies to regional seas), in management applications (e.g. to the European Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD), the Water Framework Directive (WFD), etc.). Hence, the main objective of the school is to give an overview on the integrative assessment to ocean and coastal management using an ecosystem approach view.

SADC Water Sector produces documentaries on Regional Water Cooperation by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Feb 03, 2015 09:55
The Southern African Development Community (SADC) region is home to more than 260 million people and exhibits a great diversity in culture, nature, people and ways of life. One of the characteristic features of the Region is the transboundary nature of its rivers, lakes and groundwater bodies: 15 great rivers with their respective river basins in Southern Africa are shared between two or more countries. Water, however, does not recognise international boundaries. The joint management, protection and utilisation of water in Southern Africa is therefore not an option - it is a necessity. Bridging Waters is a docu-drama series illustrating how water in Southern Africa is sustainably managed according to SADC's important Protocol on Shared Watercourses. Narrated through the lives of those residing along Southern Africa's majestic rivers and depicting their daily challenges, Bridging Waters connects the local setting with the wider importance of transboundary water management. Bridging Waters exemplifies the success and local impacts of improved cooperation between the countries that share Southern Africa's waters. Shot in 10 countries over a period of two years, the series delves into the waters of the Zambezi, the Limpopo, the Kunene, the Ruvuma and the Orange-Senqu. Rivers are the lifelines of Africa, and it is up to all of us to keep them flowing: clean and jointly managed for the benefit of all.
