•    Institutions are capable of assisting in the planning and development of water resources management in a holistic manner;
•    Regional approaches and policies on issues related to SWIM objectives are harmonized;
•  A more effective exchange between institutions inside and outside the water sectors, particularly in terms of setting policies and agreeing on accountability, efficiency and governance, is achieved;
•    Fruitful cooperation and interlinks with the water activities of other initiatives and projects are established;
•    Success stories – including those produced in the framework of the Demonstration projects (SWIM-DM) - are disseminated widely among the beneficiaries of SWIM and of other projects / programs, in view of enhancing and multiplying their effects, improving policy design and implementation and encouraging the replication of best practices;
•    Communication and awareness raising activities are developed and implemented at the Regional (Mediterranean) level and in selected countries;
