Egypt’s National Authority for Remote Sensing and Space Sciences (NARSS) and the National Water Research Center (NWRC) have formalized a joint cooperation protocol, reports Daily News Egypt. The agreement, unveiled during a workshop on Tuesday, aims to harness the combined expertise of both organizations to tackle the country's pressing water issues.

Islam Abu Al-Majd, Chairperson of NARSS, highlighted the Egyptian government's commitment to utilizing scientific research as a cornerstone for sustainable development. He noted that this collaboration aligns with the goals of Egypt’s Vision 2030, reflecting the state's dedication to integrating scientific advancements into national projects and presidential initiatives.

Sherif Mohammadi, head of NWRC, underscored the vital role of collaborative efforts between research institutions in addressing natural resource challenges. He expressed optimism about leveraging NARSS’s capabilities to form integrated project teams that can develop innovative solutions for water management.

The protocol outlines various areas of cooperation, including the study and assessment of surface and groundwater resources, the exploration of natural resources and earth sciences related to water management, and the evaluation of water resources in the context of societal needs. Additionally, it focuses on identifying and mitigating natural and environmental risks affecting water resources, as well as creating smart systems for efficient water management and distribution.

An integral part of the agreement is the emphasis on advancing research in new and renewable energy to optimize water use in power generation. The protocol also aims to employ cutting-edge remote sensing techniques, geographic information systems (GIS), and technologies such as lasers, radar, and thermal sensors for comprehensive water resource analysis and management.

The workshop showcased the technological capabilities of both NARSS and NWRC, featuring advancements like aerial and ground laser technologies, sophisticated imaging systems, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. These innovations promise to revolutionize the study and sustainable management of Egypt’s water resources.
