The Second International Symposium on Flash Floods in Wadi Systems

Lupe

Disaster Risk Reduction and Water Harvesting in the Arab Region


In recent years, flash floods in Wadi systems have caused severe damages, especially in the Arab regions. Human life, infrastructure such as roads and buildings as well as the environment are endangered and have been heavily destroyed. Flash floods are caused by extreme weather conditions, their occurrence is highly random and the associated problems are expected to increase in the near future due to climate change. On the one hand, there is an urgent need for flash flood protection and risk reduction, on the other hand, this rainwater can also be considered as a new resource for water harvesting.

Finding solutions to these challenging problems requires close collaboration between scientists – established as well as young ones, - practitioners, and stakeholders from federal and public organizations. So we encourage you to contribute to the development of future solutions and to widen your own expertise and profile by attending the international symposium.

This event is the second in a new series of annual International Symposia on Flash Floods in Wadi Systems. Furthermore this symposium is supported by the Water Resources Research Center (WRRC) and the Global Alliance of Disaster Research Institutes (GARDI) of the Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI), Kyoto University, Japan. The First International Symposium on Flash Floods in Wadi Systems held in October 2015 in Kyoto, Japan, was attended by about one hundred scientists, practitioners and stake holders from 11 countries.

Students are invited to submit abstracts for oral presentation or poster. The first ten accepted students have not to pay any fee and get a support of 1000 LE.
