The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is the most water scarce region in the world, and numerous phenomena are further worsening water security in the region, notably climate change and environmental factors (soil erosion, deforestation, water pollution), population growth, increased urbanization, ongoing water mismanagement and faulty water service provision systems.

The Center for Mediterranean Integration (CMI) convene different stakeholders around the Mediterranean to exchange knowledge and identify the solutions needed to address these challenges facing the region.

To support youth in acquiring more voice in the Mediterranean water agenda, CMI is launching the Second Mediterranean Water Heroes Contest, which invites young Mediterranean water researchers, entrepreneurs and activists the opportunity to convene and share their work.
