Publications of the Foundation
The Foundation is aligned with 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to strive on all of
society engagement and partnership. It will focus on those who are not yet involved, in order
to contribute on this directive of all of society participation in water resources management
We believe that water is a cross cutting necessity for achieving all SDGs. Therefore water is
to be put in the broader context of development, convincing decision makers to give water the
proper priority in their development plans.
In this context, the Foundation publishes, on a regular basis, booklets tackling water issues
and its relation with economical, social and environmental dimensions. The booklets are easy
to read and the main objective is to inform and sensitize the decision makers and the public at
large to create broad engagement for multi-stakeholders partnerships to address water
provision, management and safeguarding.

The topics tackled the reforestation, the impact of urbanism on agricultural lands, mechanism to develop the livestock, dry land agro biodiversity in Lebanon.

The main message of this booklet is to call upon the creation of an enabling environment for the civil society inclusive and meaningful contribution to the sustainable use and management of the water resources, as a democratic process. The booklet presents also the environmental governance and its alliance with the water resources.
Moreover, the booklet highlights the importance of including local stakeholders in all stages of water resources management, because they know their environment and the changes in their area, and they understand the community and their needs. They also guarantee the sustainability of projects and their integration into policy and assimilation in the community itself.
