Inspired by the shared diversity of the Mediterranean region, Revolve’s special report on Water Around the Mediterranean features a varied content of interviews, case studies, opinion pieces and photo essays from across the region. Contributions by leading water experts, young science journalists, key decision-makers and environmental science students further add to the range of perspectives and insights offered.

This report is divided into 8 themes. Each theme features an introductory fact sheet summarizing key facts and figures for the Mediterranean region as a whole. This general information is followed by a case study or feature article, which offer specific examples of the issues at hand. A series of interviews, opinion pieces and articles further complement the coverage of each theme.

Revolve’s special water report was launched at the 6th World Water Forum in Marseille, France, in March 2012; and went on to win best publication of the year at the 2012 World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden.
