Egypt's first Cairo Water Week (CWW) resumed Thursday its activities for the fourth day with the participation of water experts and officials from more than 50 countries around the world.

The event is organised by the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation, in cooperation with the Arab League and the Egyptian Minister of Water Resources.

A session, titled "Using solar-powered irrigation in Egypt," was held Wednesday to discuss opportunities and challenges related to using solar energy technologies in agriculture for shoring up sustainable development.

Earlier this week, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi affirmed that Cairo will continue to support the efforts of its brotherly nations to maximise benefits from the Nile River in ways that do not harm the Egyptian people.

The president's statements came during his reception of the heads of delegations participating in the CWW events.

The CWW conference is being held from 14 to 18 October to discuss water related issues, hosting water experts, ministers and officials from 53 countries.

The heads of delegations participating in the conference reflected on the importance of initiatives like CWW as an opportunity to discuss enhancing technical cooperation and building nations' capabilities to address water scarcity.

The CWW focuses on climate change and environment, trans-boundary water governance, water scarcity, health, sanitation challenges and opportunities, as well as science and technology innovation issues.
