Presentation of the Conference

The arid regions are known by their limited water potential, which minimizes the occurence of aquifer recharge and watercourse supply. The sustainable management of water resources in these regions is a permanent challenge, due to the increasing demand, linked to population growth combined to the negative impacts of climate change.

The 2017 edition of GIRE3D Congress is dedicated to arid regions and will provide an opportunity to water actors and scientists for exchanging adapted methodologies to water management in such contexts. It will also promote scientific research in consultation with water sector professionals in the three regions of the Southern Morocco.

The conference will take place on:
