Je-hydronet: modern methodologies for the management, monitoring and planning of integrated water resources in the nile delta of egypt
Author : S.A. Kantoush, T. Sumi, T. Kojiri, M. Saber, I. Elshennawy, H. Awad and A. Sefelnaser
This article outlines the development of a shared hydraulic and hydrology-based network that seeks to bridge the gap between research, education and practice. This network base was developed from the contextualised problems facing the Nile delta, Nile River system, and coastal managements in Egypt. Under the umbrella of GCOE-ARS project at Kyoto University, a joint project for research and education was established between Kyoto University and three institutional research units in Egypt. Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI), Kyoto University expert groups looked at problems of Nile Delta of Egypt related to their expertise and initiated Japan Egypt-Hydro Network (JE-HydroNet). In view of the challenges that Egypt is facing in the water resources and environmental issues, the project will help to mitigate the problems and its consequences. The exchange of qualitative and quantitative information between Japanese and Egyptian groups will contribute to the efforts of Egypt in development of innovative measures for water resources management.
