Annual Report Water Research and Learning Programme Wadi Wurayah NationalPark Fielding Season 2015-2016
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.
