Recycling waste water and Sustainable development of rapidly urbanised regions
The Central Mountain Range near the Jordan Rift valley is an area under rapid development, endangering the environmental sustainability. The urgency of the situation has motivated international academic cooperation aimed at the development of technologies enabling preservation of the region’s environmental sustainability alongside the expansion of human habitat into rural areas.
This conference will introduce our results on the subject. The relevant studies will help countries and researchers engaged in similar projects. The public will learn about the importance of sustainability which helps save water and preserve the environment in semi-arid areas.
