It is a great pleasure and honour for us to invite you to the 2nd Atlas Georesources International Congress (AGIC2019) from 28 to 30 March 2019 in Hammamet, Tunisia.
This year AGIC2019 focuses on Applied Geosciences for Groundwater. Indeed, groundwater is by far the largest water resources of unfrozen fresh water on Earth and globally provides 25 to 40 percent of the world’s drinking water. However, in a rapid changing world, groundwater systems are also changing rapidly and there is a little knowledge how do they interact with the other physical systems and respond under global changes, increasing urbanisation, overexploitation, exacerbated pollution, seawater intrusion, etc. Integrated management of water resources has become a challenge to ensure sustainable development and improve the quality of life.
Yet vulnerable, groundwater resources are under various pressures and exacerbated forms of threats that put them at higher risk. Therefore, sustainable management of groundwater resources should not rely on the hydrogeological knowledge only, but it should be based also on a multidisciplinary approach where applied geosciences combined with modelling tools can bring new information and a significant knowledge to the groundwater system functioning and identify priority issues and adaptative measures.
We welcome you to exchange your experience and work together with participants from all over the world for a few days to gain scientific progress on this exciting issue.
Looking forward to welcoming you in AGIC2019 in Hammamet, Tunisia
