The eighth International Conference on Sustainable Water Resources Management will present the more recent technological and scientific developments, associated with the management of surface and sub-surface water resources.
The first conference on Water Resources Management was held in Halkidiki, Greece in 2001, the second in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria (2003), the third in the Algarve, Portugal (2005), the fourth in Kos, Greece (2007), the fifth in Malta (2009), the sixth in Riverside, California (2011) and the seventh in the New Forest, UK (2013), home of the Wessex Institute.
Water is essential for sustaining life on our planet and its uneven distribution is a source of permanent conflict. The growth of human population combined with the irregularity in precipitation and water availability may restrict even further the access to water in certain regions of the world. This problem is made more severe by anthropogenic activities that affect its quality.
The Conference provides a platform for professionals involved in water resources management to exchange knowledge and gain an insight in to the state of the art in the current technology, techniques and solutions in sustainable water management as they have been developed and applied in different countries. Participants include a wide variety of stakeholders from research and academia, like industrial sectors as well as government organisations.
