Water has been identified as a priority area of research under the UAE National Innovation Strategy. This conference will assist policymakers in identifying appropriate measures for ensuring water availability and sustainability in order to meet the future demands of various sectors. The conference is an opportunity to share best practice and showcase research expertise and innovations related to water security and sustainability in arid and semi-arid regions.
The proposed event provides an opportunity to showcase Australian contributions to addressing global challenges in this area, and for Australian institutions to build international linkages and raise their profile on a global stage. The World Expo is a global mega-event with over 190 participating countries. The conference will be open to participation and/or attendance by representatives from a range of countries invited by UAEU and its Australian partner/s. There will also be opportunities for conference participants to deliver public lectures as part of the broader World Expo program and to attend events hosted by other International Participants during Water Focus Week.
Australia and UAEU will co-host a conference on water resource management and sustainability for arid environments during the World Expo Water Focus Week (March 2022 – exact dates TBC), which will be held at the Australian Pavilion at the Dubai Expo. UAE University is seeking partners for this conference – an invitation to submit an Expression of Interest has been emailed to AWP Australian Partners with further details (from [email protected]). Submissions will be received until 30 August 2020.
