1 1 Work plan activities Workpackage 1. Promote river-basin approaches (BASIN) Experience shows that water basin management cannot viably be undertaken by focusing on one aspect only. The formal integration of economic and biophysical disciplines should allow an accurate assessment of the economic and amenity values of water resources in their temporal and spatial dimensions. Transparency and seeking equitable and sustainable benefits are the most essential guiding principles, both in national and international river basins.

2 2 Given growing demand on land and water resources the following directions need particular attention: a)Policy research and management strategies integrating knowledge about the physical/environmental, economic, social, institutional and regulatory aspects to explore cost-effective options towards water management at basin scale; b)Simulation and modelling can allow exploring options in complex situations and can be useful policy support if communicated in understandable form to different stakeholders; c)Action research and other forms of participation of affected citizens and their organisations enable to increase the range of options that may be available to policy development and management and one way to ensure transparency.

In order to integrate, strengthen, and promote cooperation and research activities among ASEM countries focusing on the above scientific priorities, the following tasks were defined: In order to integrate, strengthen, and promote cooperation and research activities among ASEM countries focusing on the above scientific priorities, the following tasks were defined: Groundwater Division (NAS) http://www.dha.lnec.pt/nas/ Hanoi, 29 th May - 1 st June, 2006 ASEMWaterNet: 1 st workshop / kick-off meeting Integrated and Sustainable Management of Water Resources - BASIN

The activities of this first step will be initiated by the facilitators and conducted by the sub-network leader with the help of other partners involved in this workpackage. Following the kick-off meeting, a question form should be designed and sent to the relevant researchers and stakeholders in order to support the tasks 1 to 5.

15 15 GIASGIAS The research aimed the minimisation of environmental risks due to rapid economical growth of the Pearl River Delta region (Macau-Guangzhou-Hong-Kong region) and the Dalian Peninsula region, in P. R. China. The main natural resource researched in this Project was groundwater. The tasks developed in the Project were divided in several Work Packages. The first, i.e. WP1, was dedicated to the development of appropriated management mathematical models and practices towards the optimisation of the existing groundwater resources. The second Work Package, i.e. WP2, was dedicated to the research of the intrinsic groundwater vulnerability to pollution, aiming the minimisation of environmental risks to groundwater. The third Work Package, i.e. WP3, was based on the partners experience related to the research of an integrated approach on sustainable development policies for water supply, wastewater and solid waste sectors, towards the protection of natural groundwater resources. The fourth Work Package, i.e. WP4, was dedicated to the know-how transfer, not only from the EU towards China, but also, and we underline the relevance of this task, from China towards the EU.

17 17 GIASGIAS The project ‘Measuring, monitoring, and managing sustainability: the coastal dimension’ is supported by the Commission of European Communities (DG XII) under Research and Technological Development (RTD) activities. Adopting a multi-disciplinary approach, the project involves investigations on how societal driving forces – demographic, commercial and market, cultural, and technological – interact with natural systems and impact on coastal resources of India. From these investigations it proposes to design a system to measure, monitor, and manage coastal area development with a view to promote sustainable economic development. More specifically, the project aims at studying selected locations to identify: the key variables affecting coastal resources and ecosystems, the policy choices faced by decision makers, and the information requirements and decision-making instruments necessary for effective management.

NB: Priorities can be figured from high to low as follows: 5 > 4 > 3 > 2 > 1 > 0 These interconnected issues should be approached from the perspective of finding knowledge intensive solutions to societal problems that are particularly sensitive to the socio-economic context and gender roles (the usualy distinct but complementary social roles of men and women). Please elaborate in free text particularly for themes considered of high priority in your national context: Which case material should be addressed to learn region relevant lessons? Where do your competences lie in exploring solutions? How to you interact with others to achieve multiplier effects? What contributions are you willing to make to the Platform? What resources (financial, human, institutional) do you estimate as necessary for contributing/organising workshops, exchange visits, preparation of joint activities for funding from other sources?
