Portal on Water Resources in OIC Member Countries

The Roundtable Discussions Meeting which has been held during the OIC Conference of Ministers Responsible for Water (5-6 March 2012, Istanbul, Turkey) strongly recommended the establishment of a web portal on water resources to facilitate matching of needs of Member States with offers in terms of training, capacity-building, exchange of experience, expertise and technical assistance. The Meeting welcomed the offer by SESRIC to collate information from Member States on their needs and offers for cooperation. In this connection, SESRIC established this web portal on water resources in OIC member countries and developed a specific water resources capacity building questionnaire for this purpose.
