IWARESA Welcome

Dear Colleagues,  

It is our privilege to announce that CEBAS-CSIC will be hosting The IWA Regional Confer – ence on Water Reuse and Salinity Management (IWARESA) on June 11-15, 2018 in Murcia, Spain. The Conference will feature highly respected speakers who will share, discuss and debate significant new developments and scientific advancements that will impact 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.

IWARESA 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 agricul – ture. The Conference will bring together researchers, engineers, environmentalists, policy makers and water practitioners from academia, industry, water utilities, public authorities and administration, to exchange experience and know how. The Region of Murcia, located in the extreme western Mediterranean (Southeast Spain) has a dry climate (average rainfall 300 mm) and a population of 1.5 million people. Weather conditions and hundreds of years of expertise in irrigation techniques have made this Re – gion a prime fruit and vegetable producer. The strategic location of Murcia in the EU has contributed to making fruit and vegetable exports one of the main economic pillars of this Region with the tourism.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of IWARESA, we look forward to welcoming all to Murcia, one example of integrated water resources managements under semi-arid climate and a forerunner in the additional treatment and use of non-conventional water resources.
