Albert II, Prince of Monaco spoke about his commitment to protecting freshwater ecosystems via a video message at the 5th Mediterranean Water Forum.

He said, “Desalination plants, large-scale water conveyance infrastructures and other technological innovations are all obvious solutions to water scarcity. They overshadow…the need to preserve the very origin of water, i.e. its natural environment.”

Over half of all wetlands have disappeared in recent years, and the data is alarming. Anis Guelmami, the coordinator of the Mediterranean Wetlands Observatory, said, “Preserving and restoring wetlands is not only our life insurance policy for the future but also our main ally, to ensure sustainable development for all Mediterranean countries.”
