Cafe Scientifique on "Water Management" held in collaboration with the British Council on May 15th, 2016.

The Café Scientifique event sponsored by the British Council was held at KSI on May 16th, 2016. The theme of the event was “The Challenges and opportunities of Water Management for Human well-being and Security” and was conducted by Professor Edward Maltby who is a Professor Emeritus in Wetland Science,Water and Ecosystem Management at the University of Liverpool.

Cafe Scientifique

He explained how water is an essential pre-requisite of life and that the Earth’s water resources are predominantly salty but it is the availability of freshwater in sufficient quantities and of adequate quality that is essential for human well-being including underpinning sustainable economic development as well as providing environmental and national security. The countries of the Gulf region are among the most water-stressed in the world. Sustainable water management is a high priority for many countries but arguable nowhere is this most important than in the Gulf.
