International Conference on Water, Environment, Energy and Society

International Conference (ICWEES’ 2018)

Titre : International Conference on Water, Environment, Energy and Society (ICWEES’ 2018)

Lieu et date : Djerba Island, Tunisia. 08 to 11 May 2018

Organisation  : Institut des Regions Arides, Tunisia, AISECT University, India, and Texas A&M University, USA,

Présentation
The objective of the ICWEES-2018 is to integrate research, technology and practice, in the fields of Water, Environment. Energy, Sustainability, Health, Management and Society ; and bring together Scientists, Academicians, Researchers, Practicing Engineers, Consultants, Planners, Policy Makers, Economists and Social Scientists, Managers, and Leaders from around the world to share their knowledge, skills, experience, and expertise through research papers, case studies, and keynote addresses on, but not limited to, water resources, climate change, ecosystems implications for human health, sustainable land use and eco-cities, integrated resources management, green economy, green energy, cleaner production, planning, disaster management, environmental management, etc. The proposed major themes of the conference will be discussed in parallel sessions to provide opportunities for the delegates from around the world to share their knowledge, skills, experiences, and expertise with focus on water, environmental, energy, and societal challenges facing our planet and the future of our generation. Environmental problems, such as desertification processes, land degradation and rehabilitation, land cover and land use change, climate change, droughts, early warning, and more, are of utmost importance in arid environments where natural resources are scarce and vulnerable.

Objectifs
* Bring together leading experts, policy makers and organizations, and share latest developments in water, soil and energy resources management under climate change * Review modern technologies and innovative approaches to be directed in fragile regions for identification, adaptation and mitigation of climate change phenomenon. * Strengthen exchanges and cooperation in research, development and socio-economic sector for participatory management of soil and water resources and energy
