The degradation of water resources is a serious threat to eco-systems. Climate change has increased the risk of flooding, landslides and mudflows. The increase of periods of drought coincides with long-term water shortages that are not offset by levies. The expected rise in sea level will lead to a decrease in inhabited territories and an increase in the salt level of groundwater. Wetlands are essential for ecological balance and are in considerable decline. These are among the themes that will be debated at the MedCoop annual meeting on decentralised cooperation to be held next 28 November 2008 in Sophia Antipolis (France).
