Mediterranean Network of Basin Organisations



MENBO is a Regional Network that promotes an integrated water resources management at the river basin level, as an essential tool for sustainable development. It is a regional network inside INBO (International Network of Basin Organisations). MENBO seeks to improve relationships among organisations in charge of water management in the Mediterranean region.

The Regional Network was established in 2003 and is currently adding international members from the Mediterranean region. We hope this Network will grow stronger with the support and collaboration from most of the Mediterranean countries that deal with river basin management.
