Africa is acutely sensitive to water issues. Several countries have lost as much as 25% of their water resources from their lakes and reservoirs. The state of the ground water is poorly mapped and the pattern of rainfall is changing due to climatic change. Above all, Africa has a rapidly growing population that needs water for food production and industrial uses.
The conference will therefore review critical water issues and will cover both theoretical and applied water knowledge. Sessions will include:
- Water quality and contamination
- Water usage for human consumption, industrial use, recreation and agriculture
- Sustainable water management and treatment: recycling & use, desalination, treatment processes, infrastructure, planning & management and purification technology
- Climate change and water
