A symposium on water resource management opens on October 28, 2019 in Morocco. The event, organised by UNESCO, responds to the problem of water stress faced by African and Middle Eastern countries. The use of software to manage irrigation, wastewater treatment and reuse and several other water-related topics will form the backdrop to this four-day meeting.

The Rabah meeting has three main objectives:
