Work ExperienceWater resource management for a better irrigation development in Lebanon. This includes conservation of natural water resources and safe use of water for agricultural pruposes. Participatory water management is also a concern. This underlines the various water saving policies being undertaken at national level. The effect of climate variability and climate change on water resources in space and time under semi-arid environments.
