2.5 Days Training course on 22-24 March 2017
"Managing water scarcity in the Middle East: Water Accounting and Technological Innovations"
Organized by ACWUA and UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education
Water scarcity in the Middle East increasingly is a concern of governments and local authorities. Refugee streams are exacerbating this situation in various countries. Management of water in water scarce situations is supported by both data acquisition, policy development and the application of new or improved technologies. Technologies, such as treatment and reuse of wastewater for agricultural use or desalination of ground- or seawater for urban water supplies, are continuously improved and more energy efficient.
The objective of this training is to define water scarcity and elaborate on the different views on the issue of water scarcity. Furthermore, ‘water accounting’ based on global water models will be introduced as the basis for water scarcity management. Scenarios will be developed using a mix of proposed solutions, including management change and technological intervention to increase water availability such as desalinization.
