About IWARESA Conference
The IWA Regional Conference on Water Reuse and Salinity Management will address the problem of water scarcity induced by climate change in arid and semiarid areas, the use of non-conventional water sources in agriculture and the risk of agricultural land and groundwater salinization in areas where aquifers are significantly depleted.
Participating in IWARESA 2018 will provide the benefit of learning about advancements in water reuse and salinity management in Murcia Region, a typical Mediterranean area where the salt and water stresses are the main limiting factors for a very productive and technical agriculture.
We are inviting to participate in this Conference all international audience with specific focus on water reuse and salinity management in coastal areas and arid/semiarid climate, and specifically those who work on these topics in the Mediterranean and Middle East regions.
See You in IWARESA 2018
