MedYWat is managed by the Center for Mediterranean Integration Marseille. It is a community of young water professionals from different backgrounds working on water in the Mediterranean. This group was launched during the first Wold Water Day youth workshop on treated wastewater reuse (Marseille, March 2017).
The group’s motto is “Empowering, Connecting & Change-Making”. It values inclusiveness, innovation and a collaborative spirit.
Members consider water as a critical public good in the region and are determined to positively impact the fragile water situation of the Mediterranean region, while connecting with other youth water networks around the world to amplify the voice of youth on the regional and global water and environmental agendas.
The Energy Subsidy Reform Online Community (ESROC) brings together government officials from around the world, experts from the World Bank and from other international organizations interested in reforming energy subsidies. This members-only online platform is a safe space for frank discussion (Chatham House rules apply), networking among peers, and exchanging knowledge and experiences to help overcome the challenges of reforming energy subsidies. The platform is run by ESMAP and is open to all participants in ESMAP events about energy subsidies.
The Solid Waste Management online community aims to achieve fluid knowledge sharing between solid waste management community members of all affiliations. Through document sharing, discussions, and events, we hope to create awareness of solid waste issues and innovations across the globe.
