Fifth International Conference on Water Resources and Hydropower Development in Asia
Aqua~Media International is pleased to announce that the vibrant city of Colombo, Sri Lanka, has been selected as the venue for ASIA 2014 the Fifth International Conference on Water Resources and Hydropower Development in Asia.
The idyllic island of Sri Lanka has a long history of water resources development, since the first dams were constructed as far back as 600 BC.
The country now has about 60 large and 200 medium-scale dams in operation, and some 12 000 small ones serving rural areas. Several important projects are under construction or planned for implementation soon.
The ASIA 2014 Conference and Exhibition will bring together experts in all the disciplines associated with planning, financing, implementing, operating and refurbishing dams, hydro plants, and other renewable energy systems. Delegations from more than 60 countries are expected to attend, and will exchange knowledge and experience on a broad range of topics of particular relevance to the Asian countries, such as policy and planning, project finance, design and construction of water infrastructure, flood mitigation and management, sedimentation management, hydro plant design, safety, small and large hydro, pumped storage, power trading and climate change adaptation.
