15 April 2019 International conference

8th international session of IFGR

The French department of Guyana doesn't lack of water. It's the third territory in the wolrld in terms of fresh water available. Nature reveals here all its beauty: the huge tropical forest, the two great rivers Oyapok and Maroni and many tributaries. ... and also the close links between rivers and humans.

The health of the humans depends on the health of these rivers. That's the topic IFGR members will discuss, exploring the issues of wastewater treatment to reduce exposure to waterborne diseases; development of tropical infectious diseases and mercury pollution.
