At the Euro-Mediterranean conference on water management in Marseilles (nov.1996), representatives of the 27 countries signatory to the Barcelona Convention (November 1995) and the European Union and the Commission decided to study the establishment of an information system that would facilitate access to information based on modern means of communication and by networking pre-existing systems. This is EMWIS : Euro-Mediterranean system of information on know-how in the Water Sector: www.semide.tn  EMWIS is not a water resources database or a tool for water resources management. Generally EMWIS manages information and not data.
