About Arab Water Week 2017
Jordan is among those countries with the greatest shortage of water in the Arab world. Its biggest challenges include supplying the country with drinking water as well as wastewater disposal and treatment.
Only about half the population of Jordan are connected up to a public sewer system. The construction of sewer networks, wastewater treatment plants and water treatment facilities is gaining increasingly in importance. Exploitation of natural resources has reached the maximum. As further natural reserves of drinking water do not in fact exist, technical means have to be employed in order to increase availability. For example, a major project is currently being planned to carry water from the Red Sea through a pipeline 270 kilometers long into the Dead Sea and to desalinate large quantities of water. And yet, the water shortage will probably continue to get worse.
Know-how and technology from Germany play a very important part in coping with problems of water management in the entire region. Apart from the demand for technological solutions, the Arab world is also interested in experiences with regard to training and education as well as the operation and maintenance of water supply and wastewater disposal facilities.
At the same time, Jordan functions as a role model for many Arab countries with regard to the technologies and management structures employed. Systems that work well in Jordan are often copied by the neighboring states.
Against this background, Arab Water Week was initiated under the auspices of Jordan’s Minister of Water and Irrigation Dr. Hazim El-Naser. It will now be taking place for what is already the fourth time. The title of the 2017 event is “Managing Water Systems within Fragile Environments in the Arab Region”.
Arab Water Week (AWW) is a high-level international conference setting regional priorities. It offers a comprehensive program on regulation and strategies in water management, it includes technical lectures and is rounded off by an accompanying exhibition (The Arab Water Trade Fair).
As a high-profile event for decision-makers, water suppliers, wastewater companies and other key players, service providers and professional associations in water management, it is supported by all 22 Arab states (and also the Arab Ministerial Water Council, the League of Arab States and the Jordanian Ministry of Water and Irrigation (MWI)).
It is the event where the who’s who from water management in the Arab world as well as the Middle East and North Africa—the MENA region—meet up to exchange ideas, knowledge and experiences.
Arab Water Week thus provides not just the chance to present your own products, solutions and innovations but also the unique opportunity to establish networks with high-ranking decision-makers from public and private water suppliers and wastewater disposal operators/water supply companies, water ministries and environmental authorities, municipalities, advisors and educational institutions from the entire Arab region.
ACWUA—the organizer of Arab Water Week (AWW)—expects more than 400 participants and delegations at AWW 2017. Many of these are members of ACWUA, an association comprising more than 500 individual members and over 106 water and wastewater companies from 18 Arab countries: Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauretania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
