  resources to meet changing water demands

 water and climate models needs be linked

              Session 5
• Funding is a challenge,
• We cannot expect much from international
  funds => governments obligations
• Potential opportunities from upgrading
  existing systems
 Guidance should be further developed on:
  - participatory approach e.g.health aspects among
   others, etc.
  - financial issues need to implement case studies,
    in particular for the transboundary cooperation
  - solidarity in sharing risks and cost issues
Important finding:
• With regard to measures concerning
  adaptation to climate change we are still
  at the beginning of the implementation
  process
