Asia-Pacific Regional Group Conference & Exhibition
Science

Perth, Australia - The conference focuses on the challenges of finding solutions through technical innovation, integrated management of the complete water cycle, training, education, capacity building and the necessary policy, regulatory and governance settings.

The Asia-Pacific Region, like the rest of the world, is confronting serious water problems related to water resources and water pollution. The most fundamental problem is lack of access to basic sanitation services and clean drinking water. This problem is faced by much of the developing part of this region. At the same time rapid growth taking place in the region, both in developed and developing countries, has added to the already stressed water situation in the region.

There are many basic issues to be addressed, such as meeting the needs of exploding urban centres, low grade treatment of municipal and industrial wastewater, pollution of surface and groundwater and deterioration of aquatic ecosystems.

The ASPIRE regional conference focuses on the challenges of finding solutions through technical innovation, integrated management of the complete water cycle, training, education, capacity building and the necessary policy, regulatory and governance settings . It is hoped through presentation of new ideas, discussions and exchange of scientific and technological knowledge we will be able to face the problems and issues with better confidence.

The conference will focus on design, operation, maintenance and management of water and wastewater systems. Innovations in the field, case studies on safe and reliable systems for removal of nutrients, water reuse, and methods of better operation will also be discussed at the conference. There will be specific emphasis on issues facing the Asia-Pacific Region.



Who Should Attend?
The conference will bring together scientists, engineers and practising professionals from government departments, international aid agencies, private institutions, consulting establishments, research institutes and tertiary institutions. More than 500 delegates are expected to attend the conference.
