This international conference intends to unite scientific researchers that are working throughout the globe to increase the water availability in drylands. Secondly, it aims at generating useful output that can stimulate new techniques to be adopted, and allow learning from successes and failures.
Thirdly, it is intended to develop a network of water augmentation experts.
The conference should lead to an increased consensus in the scientific community regarding sustainable techniques that alleviate the lack of water in drought-prone regions and help to build resilience in societies vulnerable to climate related risks.
