About Arab Water Week
The Arab Water Week is a high-profile international and regional event promoted to attract decision makers, water management practitioners, and professional organizations internationally and in the Arab region. It was firstly launched in Amman, Jordan in December 2010, and organized by the Arab Countries Water Utilities Association (ACWUA) in partnership with Jordanian Ministry of Water and Irrigation (MWI) and League of Arab States- Arab Ministerial Water Council (LAS- AMWC).
IHE Delft and DUPC2 participation
IHE Delft will be present at the event with a session titled “Workshop: sharing ideas and research findings for solving water scarcity”. This session will have the participation of partners that are expert on water scarcity to help establishing a platform for experts and policy makers from MENA region and the international community to exchange ideas and share views on measures to manage water scarcity.
