“Wa­ter is the com­mon discourse that binds us.” Tho­se we­re the re­marks that ope­ned the of­fi­cial pre­sen­ta­tion of the “Cubagua 2019” In­ter­na­tio­nal Convention in its third edi­tion. Eng. Abel Sa­las, head of the event's or­ga­ni­zing com­mit­tee, said the event –sla­ted for Ha­va­na on March 19-22 next year- will gat­her re­sear­chers, pro­du­cers and bu­si­ness­peo­ple lin­ked to wa­ter ma­na­ge­ment, ca­re and pro­tec­tion.

Cu­ba's Ins­ti­tu­to Na­cio­nal de Re­cur­sos Hi­draú­li­cos and Unión Na­cio­nal de Ar­qui­tec­tos e In­ge­nie­ros de la Cons­truc­ción de Cu­ba thought out a plat­form for the re­search and en­tre­pre­neu­rial sec­tors to stand on equal foo­ting. With this goal in mind, fi­ve events ha­ve been grou­ped in a bid to pro­vi­de a more com­prehen­si­ve vi­sion from a scien­ti­fic, com­mer­cial and en­vi­ron­men­tal stand­point.

The Third Tech­ni­cal-Com­mer­cial Sym­po­sium and the Wa­ter Pro­duct and Tech­no­logy Ex­hi­bi­tion pre­sent them­sel­ves as pla­ces to sha­re views and es­ta­blish bu­si­ness ties with Cuban im­por­ting enterprise­s and par­ti­ci­pa­ting com­pa­nies from ot­her coun­tries. The In­ter­na­tio­nal Con­gress on Hy­drau­lic En­gi­nee­ring is tou­ring the en­ti­re country prior to the event in or­der to co­llect the best ex­pe­rien­ces in the field. This will gua­ran­tee that only the best work pa­pers and top re­sear­chers will be at­ten­ding the gat­he­ring at the In­ter­na­tio­nal Con­fe­ren­ce Cen­ter in Ha­va­na. The con­fe­ren­ce halls and rooms for scien­ti­fic dis­cus­sions will be the star­ting blocks to im­ple­ment pro­jects that tar­get well-de­fi­ned pro­blems in dif­fe­rent world re­gions. What's more, they will lead tech­no­lo­gi­cal breakth­roughs to tac­kling spe­ci­fic needs of both cus­to­mers and nations.

The pro­gram al­so in­clu­des the Se­mi­nar on Com­prehen­si­ve Wa­ter Use and the se­cond edi­tion of the Works­hop on the Ma­na­ge­ment of Hy­dro­grap­hic Ba­sins, which will round out the universe of a convention who­se com­mon de­no­mi­na­tor is the fos­te­ri­ng of a cul­tu­re on ra­tio­nal wa­ter con­sum­ption.

AN END­LESS PAS­SION

Tho­se at­ten­ding Cubagua 2019 should know that de­le­ga­tes from 34 coun­tries at­ten­ded the two pre­vious edi­tions, with a tur­nout of 62 com­pa­nies.

In ad­di­tion, the event is al­so an in­ter­na­tio­nal re­cog­ni­tion to everything Cu­ba has do­ne in terms of pro­tec­ting its na­tu­ral re­sour­ces. Sin­ce 2012, the is­land na­tion has been im­ple­men­ting an in­vest­ment pro­gram ai­med at re­ne­wing the exis­ting tech­no­logy. It's im­por­tant to say that Cuban ex­perts are cu­rrently pit­ching a hel­ping hand in hand­ling drought in se­ve­ral Afri­can and Ca­rib­bean coun­tries.

En­vi­ron­ment-friendly peo­ple warn about a cab­ba­la in the sche­du­led pro­gram. The third edi­tion will ta­ke pla­ce in the same month when spring breaks and will come to a clo­se on March 22, mar­ked as the World Wa­ter Day.
