Water is the issue of the millennium. With limited and depleting natural sources, desalination can supplement some of the critically lacking amount of water needed for sustainable development.

This conference is a great opportunity to bring together research scientists, decision makers, managers, design engineers and operators from water companies, industries, government departments, consulting firms, research institutes and universities. Encouraging the private sector to invest in water desalination projects by offering and presenting investment opportunities in the construction, operations and maintenance fields is a must.

This conference also, contribute to the transfer and localization of the technology in the Arab world by urging companies specialized in the field of seawater desalination to establish their plants in the region. Raise the level of the worker in the field of seawater desalination through training, rehabilitation, and transfer of expertise to the next generation of engineers and technicians.
