Final announcement of the regional conference on Sustainable Integrated Wastewater Treatment and Reuse

A regional conference on Sustainable Integrated Wastewater Treatment and Reuse to be held from 1-2 Dec 2014 in Sharm El-Shaikh - Egypt,


Introduction

Within the framework of the SWIM Sustain Water MED Project, we are pleased to announce the organization of a two-day regional conference on ‘Sustainable Integrated Wastewater Treatment and Reuse in the Mediterranean Region’. The southern Mediterranean region is experiencing increasing water shortages. This situation is exacerbated by climate change impacts as well as rising water demand resulting from growing populations and expanding economic sectors in the region’s countries. The safe use of non-conventional water resources offer viable options for sustainable solutions.

The two-day conference is organized as part of the SWIM Sustain Water MED project, funded by the European Union and the German Government. The project aims to demonstrate context-adapted and cost-effective technologies for improved non-conventional water resources management as well as highlight necessary accompanying stakeholder engagement, capacity development and management measures. In this context, pilot projects are implemented in Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt and Jordan and a regional exchange network for mutual learning is established.

For the aforementioned conference, we are seeking qualified and enthusiastic experts to contribute with presentations on the below mentioned topics. Kindly note that the official language of the conference and the sessions is English with simultaneous translation offered in the Arabic language.
