World Water Week
DATE: 6th September 2010
|Dr. Moustapha Diene
World Water Week is one of the major global water events, and AGW-Net was fortunate to be able to send two representatives to participate. Dr. Moustapha Diene (pictured below), our steering committee member from Senegal, representing Francophone and West African members, participated in an event on 'Groundwater Quality in Capacity Development'. Dr Richard Owen, the network manager from Zimbabwe, presented a profile of the Africa Groundwater Network, and also participated in the 3R event (recharge, recycle and reuse) where he presented a paper on 'gabion weirs'.
The AGW-Net participation was sponsored by the German Geological Survey, BGR.
