IWS 2013: EAD to Share Expert Knowledge on Groundwater at International Water Summit
EAD's regulatory role in permitting and controlling the drilling of wells has contributed enormously to the conservation of the Emirate's groundwater, and its endorsement of the International Water Summit (IWS) which will take place in Abu Dhabi from 15 - 17 January 2013, confirms its commitment to promoting the role the UAE is playing in addressing this crucial issue.
The keynote speech by H.E. Razan Khalifa Al Mubarak, EAD Secretary General, on January 16, 2013 of the inaugural International Water Summit, will set the tone for action on water scarcity in arid regions, and provide inspiration for the government delegations, policymakers, scientists and business leaders attending this global event.
The speech by H.E. Al Mubarak marks the start of a major contribution by EAD to heavily promote the water sustainability message. EAD's stand at the IWS Exhibition will feature exciting elements such as:
- an on-site programme featuring presentations by EAD experts on the status of groundwater
- a downloading station where people can download strategies and documents related to water resources
- a 'UAE Native Plants' wall promoting the UAE's salt-tolerant flora
A prominent feature of its stand will be a 'Groundwater through the Years' timeline which will take visitors on a journey to see how Abu Dhabi has worked to preserve its groundwater over the years and the exciting initiatives that lie ahead.
Also, a Solar Desalination Unit model will be on display in the Rural Community section of the Sustainable Solutions Village.
