Drainage and Flood Control Summit

26-27 November 2017, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia <https://drainagefloodcontrol.com/>

Nispana Innovative Platforms Pvt. Ltd. <www.nispana.com> in partnership with Oxford Business Group; and International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage (ICID) is organizing Drainage and Flood Control Summit from 26-27 November 2017 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.


Rapid urbanization in Saudi Arabia is putting further strain in the existing municipal and civil amenities. This in turn creates an urgent need for efficient management of resources and effectively designing an effective drainage and sewerage infrastructure to meet these needs.


There is also a necessity to recharge the depleting ground water by having efficient ways to harness water with proper distribution methods and drainage systems through effective regulation. Currently the storm water flood management and drainage contracts are worth $270 Million across the 14 governorates in Saudi Arabia. There is a need for developing strategies to develop a volatile drainage & storm water network to stay in tune with the future demands of the city.


Nispana’s inaugural Drainage and Flood Control Summit scheduled to take place on the 26-27 November 2017 in Riyadh will bring the collective intelligence of stakeholders and also the acumen of visionary speakers like  Dr. Amr A. El-Agroudy, Advisor – Storm water Drainage Infrastructure & Municipal Assets Sector, Abu Dhabi City Municipality; Dr. Mohamed Abd-El-Moneim Wahba, Vice President, ICID; Dr.Ayad Aldaijy- CIO, Ministry of Agriculture, KSA; Farhan Aziz – Drainage Engineer, Mouchel; Yasser Zakaria , Urban Water management Consultant, Arriyadh Development Authority and many more in an effort to catalyze collaboration between the public & private stakeholders to exchange knowledge & share best practices for developing, refurbishing, operating and sustaining drainage chains for Saudi Arabia.
