Course and conference about water management in Agadir (Morocco)
GLOBAQUA is a EU-funded project aiming to identify the prevalence of, and interaction between, stressors under water scarcity.
In October, two GLOBAQUA (www.globaqua-project.eu) events are taking place in Agadir, Morocco: 1. Training course on Knowledge Brokerage for River Basin Management (3 Oct.) 2. Conference: Managing Water Scarcity in River Basins: Innovation and Sustainable Development (4 to 6 Oct.)
3 October 2018 - 6 October 2018
The course (3 Oct.) aims to deliver knowledge and skills for better use of scientific and stakeholder knowledge essential for river basin management. Participants will learn new methods to share knowledge and strengthen the relationships between science and policy for river basin management under complex multiple stress conditions and will be able to apply these methods in their own situations. The target groups are scientists, policymakers, river basin managers, and (local) stakeholders who are (or should be) involved in river basin management. Registration deadline: 10 September.

The conference aims at bringing together scientists and practitioners in the water sector to inform, exchange and raise awareness about latest knowledge and innovation in areas affected by water scarcity. It will highlight European and national southern Mediterranean strategies on water, and will elaborate on innovations on water reuse from municipal wastewater treatment, the use of brackish water, seawater desalination, water efficiency and reuse in agriculture, and will discuss decentralised solutions for sustainable development. The target includes academics and scientists; practitioners from water utilities and water authorities; R&D performers; and consulting engineers and professionals. Registration deadline: 10 September – Abstract submission (posters/oral presentations) deadline: 15 August 2018.
