THEME

The three-day workshop aims to explore challenges, technologies, and research related to water and energy needs in remote austere locations, addressing common interests between Botswana, the USA, and other regions. Given the absence of conventional infrastructure in these areas, modern water purification and energy solutions face significant challenges. This workshop, featuring presentations, discussions, and recommendations, will cover evaluation, quantification, generation, modeling, distribution, and sustainability aspects.
