(MENAFN - The Peninsula) The Second Arab Water Conference, which opens on May 27, will discuss and exchange ideas on issues, including ways and means to achieve greater efficiency in the management of water in Arab countries.

The three-day forum to be held under the auspices of Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) in cooperation with the Arab Ministerial Water Council will seek creative and sustainable solutions to meet challenges being faced by the region. The conference is being held under the patronage of the Prime Minister and Interior Minister H E Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani.

Nasser Ali Al Mohannadi, Director of Customer Services, Kahramaa, and Chairman of the Organising Committee, told a press conference yesterday: "Kahramaa is honoured to be hosting this conference on Qatar's behalf. "It reinforces Qatar's active role within the Arab world as an advocate and champion of sustainability within our communities.

"We are thankful for the continuing support and encouragement from our country from all quarters as well as support and received from our brothers in the Arab world who have expressed their commitment to achieve this common goal," Al Mohannadi said.

"Through this conference, we hope to further reiterate Kahramaa's commitment to being a sustainable and responsible corporate citizen within our community and encourage the adoption and development of advanced technology and methodologies to ensure water security within our community."

Topics include seawater desalination technologies being used in countries without sufficient access to fresh water.

The forum will also address desalination practices in use and new proposals to ensure efficiency not just in potable water extraction but also the energy utilised to achieve results.

Other major issues that affect countries in the region include ground water quality and reservoirs. Many countries in the region have particularly challenging issues related to depleting groundwater resources. Solutions to meet these challenges range from replenishing groundwater resources to updating extraction technologies.
