Join policy experts, scientists, researchers, and other professionals for panel discussions and keynote addresses on using floodwater for managed aquifer recharge (Flood-MAR).
On Monday, October 28, the focus will be on the policy and socio-economic aspects of Flood-MAR. The agenda features a panel discussion on policy that can help Flood-MAR increase in reach and effectiveness.
