The 2020 Conference WATER in the MENA Region: Preparing for a Changing World aims to bring together leading professionals, specialists, practitioners and researchers involved in various aspects of water resources management with a distinct focus on the Eastern Mediterranean, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA Region). The conference will encourage and facilitate the exchange of experiences, research findings and lessons learned from exemplary case studies. This will be facilitated by establishing a platform to review the current state and discuss the recent innovations, trends and practical solutions that address the challenges of maintaining water security in the MENA Region in a rapidly changing world.
The Conference will be the first Future Earth MENA Regional Centre (FEMRC) regional conference outside Cyprus. The University of Bahrain has been chosen to be the first host, partner and co-organizer of what is anticipated to be a biennial gathering of Future Earth and regional partners, with a new location and a new thematic focus on each occasion. This year’s conference on the topic of water scarcity is being planned as an “in the MENA Region – with the MENA Region – for the MENA Region” event. The deadline for Abstract Submission is 31st July 2019 and more information about the event is available here.
