Webinar on Safety and security of Water Infrastructures, the SubNetwork on Critical Infrastructures kicks-off its series of thematic webinars


On March 31st 2021, from 9.30 to 11.00 CEST, the UNIMED SubNetwork on Safety and Security of Critical Infrastructures kicked-off a series of thematic webinars dedicated to a wide range of topics related to critical infrastructures. First of the series was a meeting dedicated to Water Infrastructures.

The aim of the webinar was to explore and discuss a number of topics related to water infrastructures: from water leaking and detection systems to smart water networks, from long-term water security to adaptations related to climate change, from the water energy nexus to extending systemic risk to resilience management. The 6 speakers were from 5 different countries (Italy, Jordan, Palestine, Cyprus and Egypt) and presented their own experiences and research to the audience.

At the end of the webinar, many interesting inputs for further cooperation raised up and attendees showed the strong willingness to move further in collaboration.

The webinar highlighted the high level of interdisciplinarity of critical infrastructures, as well as the potential synergies opened by collaborations across countries and across the Mediterranean.

The Agenda of the webinar on Safety and security of Water Infrastructures is available here and the recording of the session is here below.



The speakers used PPT during the session, which stay for your further reference here:
