CALL FOR PAPERS

EXPLANATORY NOTE
Integrated management of water resources requires both a well understanding of natural systems, knowledge of related -water hazards and its use as well as implementation of mechanisms for information, awareness and consultation. This can not be achieved without accurate data, and therefore without a mastery of systems for measuring and counting. Where are we today and what are the prospects for the future? What efforts must be done and in what way? To discuss all these issues is what aims the Hydrographical Basin Agency Constantinois-Seybousse Mellegue by organizing an international symposium in Constantine that was planned on 22nd May 2012 but which is posponed to 4th& 5thJune 2012

Representatives of governments, organisms responsible for measuring, water management or communication, representatives of local authorities and representatives of the University will be invited to attend this event. This is a particularly rich and important theme for the establishment of a real integrated management of water resources.

A call for papers is launched, with proposal attached themes: those who are interested by a presentation are requested to send an abstract before 22nd March 2012 to the Hydrographical Basin Agency by fax to: +213 (0) 31 92 33 59/92 23 52 or by email to: contact@abhcsm.dz
