Freshwater is an essential element for sustainable development as well as to life. Water possesses social, economic and environmental values that are interdependent and complementary. Limited access to water in quantity and quality is one of the main factors hindering sustainable development. The sustainable management of water resources must be based on an integrated approach linking development and protection of the natural environment, on the participation of all actors and concerned parties and on the recognition of the economic and social value of water. We must promote the integration of all aspects of planning, management and protection of water resources by developing plans which aim to satisfy basic needs and to promote equitable and effective distribution of water resources, ecosystem protection and maintenance of the water cycle.
Through this Symposium, particular attention is paid to strategies of rigorous management, of rational use and protection of water resources based on scientific and technical tools. Through the various themes, the conference of international significance will enable the academic community, researchers and managers not only an exchange of experience, but also a better understanding on how that can be implemented to better optimize therefore better manage.
We must react now, for there is not a second chance. Water for all mankind. Water for life
