This annual report summarises the activities of Fielding Season 3 (October 2015 – April 2016) of the Water Research Learning Programme in the Wadi Wurayah National Park, Fujairah, United Arab Emirates.
 
The Water Research and Learning Programme (WRLP), implemented in the Wadi Wurayah National Park, is a 5-year programme designed by Earthwatch Institute UK and implemented by EWS-WWF. The programme is funded by HSBC Bank Middle East as part of its Global Water Programme. This programme is facilitated through the strategic partnership and support of Fujairah Municipality. The WRLP is hosted by the Water Research Centre (WRC), located at the entrance of Wadi Wurayah National Park in Fujairah, which offers comfortable and convenient facilities for participants during their 5-day module.
 
The WRLP’s goal is to educate and raise awareness on freshwater issues and resources among residents and citizens of the Middle East region, as well as to encourage the wise use of water resources, provide practical ways for individuals to reduce their water footprints, conduct freshwater ecological research, and develop policies and regulations for the national park, based on relevant scientific knowledge.
