Gulf Water Week 2010 Seeks Affordable, Sustainable Measures Against Water Scarcity

Three-day event to take place May 24 to 26

Water scarcity underscores the need for better water resources and management. While there has been short supply, demand for water is growing throughout the planet with Gulf Cooperation Council countries named as the most affected region. It is the result of population increase and other social factors such as rapid urbanization and wasteful consumption patterns.

Led by the thirst and desperation, policymakers and experts are always on the lookout for solutions and alternatives. Debates and discussions continue. As part of corporate effort to the world’s society, JFPS Group Malaysia will bring together industry experts to Dubai for Gulf Water Week 2010.

The three-day event, taking place from May 24 to 26, 2010, is designed to give attending delegates comprehensive discussion on issues of water conservation and integrated water resource management, wastewater treatment and reuse, as well as water distribution and loss management. All of these will be delivered through case studies and interactive forums.

The group said to expect 100 C-level delegates from water-related industries; i.e.; water utilities and water supply companies, water ministries and authorities, environmental ministries and agencies, as well as municipalities.

Sponsorship and delegate registration is now open.
