Secure water supplies are critical to future sustainable economies and societies. Unprecedented human impact is directly degrading resource quality on every continent and, through global warming, threatens vast change in hydrological systems, with impacts on water availability and access in nearly all parts of the world. Those with fewest resources to tackle these changes will inevitably suffer the most.
Please join us as we inaugurate IWMI’s US-based office in Washington, DC, with a discussion of our collaborative research to tackle these complex challenges. The seminar will focus on new and promising solutions to ensure a more water-secure future with less risk and greater equity for rapidly growing populations and economies worldwide.
