KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Feb. 4, 2010 -- Water scarcity underscores the need for better water resources and management. While there has been short supply, demand for water is growing throughout the planet with GCC countries named as the most affected region. It is undeniably the result of population increase and other social factors such as rapid urbanization and wasteful consumption patterns.

Led by the thirst and desperation, policy makers and experts are always on the lookout for solutions and alternatives. Debates and discussions continue. As part of corporate commitment to the world's society, JFPS Group Malaysia will bring together industry experts from all over to Dubai for Gulf Water Week 2010.

The 3-days event taking place from 24-26 May 2010 is designed in such a way to give attending delegates the benefits of a comprehensive discussion on issues of water conservation and integrated water resource management, wastewater treatment and reuse, as well as water distribution and loss management. All these will be delivered through practical case studies and interactive forums.

Expect more than 100 C-level delegates from water-related industries; i.e., water utilities and water supply companies, water ministries and authorities, environmental ministries and agencies, as well as municipalities.

Key speakers for the event include Dr. Ahmed Ali Murad, Head of Geology of UAE University; Tim Waldron, Chief Executive Officer of Wide Bay Water Corporation, Australia; Abdul Ghani Khalaf, Director of Water Distribution, Electricity & Water Authority, Bahrain; Colin Hannan, Director of Water Services, Regulations & Supervision Bureau of Abu Dhabi, UAE; Dr. Mohamed Raouf, Program Manager -- Environment, Gulf Research Centre, UAE; Dr. Nurul Akhand, Irrigation Specialist of International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA), UAE; and Kevin Samson, Manager-Wastewater of City of Cape Town, South Africa.
