The Mediterranean Hydrological Cycle Observing System

MED-HYCOS Program is aimed at providing a scientific basis and a framework for co-operation in water resources monitoring, assessment and integrated water resources management at community, river basin, national and regional levels.

MED-HYCOS will contribute to the understanding of the dynamic of hydrosystems and to their interaction with climate - global change - and with the environment - impact of human activities - to optimise management strategies and to encourage intersectoral sharing of water resources data and information for development and natural capital management.

The MED-HYCOS program is designed to increase the capacities of the National Hydrological Services such as the principal data producers on national and regional level. In this manner the MED-HYCOS program will contribute to effective water resources assessment and monitoring in the Mediterranean region.
