About this book

A collection of symposium papers covering three main themes: remediation of the polluted soil; enhancement of the visual impact of greenery; and recycling of wastewater for rehabilitation purposes. The first theme is highlighted with presentations on the KISR/PEC Oil-Lake Beds Remediation Project. The second theme is launched with a broad-based discussion on new strategies and alternatives for greening the desert and a summary of the Kuwait National Greenery Plan, which is now being prepared. The third theme features presentations on water resource management in Japan and in KISR's Reverse Osmosis Project to make municipal wastewater recyclable for greenery use in densely populated areas. The closing session culminates in perspectives and recommendations from both Kuwait and Japan and with an historical summary of the long-standing Kuwait/Japan Collaborative Programme.
