“Let The Rivers Flow”, a talk given by by Dr Hassan Abbas, an expert in Hydrology, Water Resources & Groundwater Management, at a TEDx event. Copied here with thanks of TEDx.
Water being a source of life can never be taken for granted. This natural resource like any other should not be tinted through technological interventions.

Formerly, he has held the prestigious UNESCO Chair in Knowledge Systems for Integrated Water Resources Management at COMSATS.
In the past 28 years, he has worked in seven different countries spanning from the driest deserts of Australia to the wettest basins of Great Lakes in North America, and, all the way to the glaciated regions of Svalbard archipelago near the north pole. Dr Hassan Abbas holds PhD in Hydrology and Water Resources from Michigan State University, USA; Masters in Hydrogeology and Groundwater Management from University of Technology Sydney, Australia; and, Bachelors in Civil Engineering from MCE, Pakistan. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
