U.N. World Water Day: Key Challenges and Opportunities to Sustainable Water Management

Symposium - 45 views
Friday, 22 March 2019
12:30 - 16:30
Anna van Buerenplein, The Hague

The U.N. World Water Day symposium is hosted by Leiden University. Water resource management spans a diverse range of expertises related to the interdisciplinary field, therefore multidisciplinary discussion panels address these key challenges and oppurtunities in the development of sustainable water management. The discussion panels are formed by academic staff of Leiden University and professionals from the workfield.

Water resource management is essential to sustainability, especially in view of global environmental change driven by climate, population, and land cover change activities. The topic is included within the U.N Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 6): 'Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.' As Leiden University and adjacent local organisations span a diverse range of expertise related to the field of water resource management, Leiden University organises a symposium to address key challenges and opportunities to the development of sustainable water management through a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary perspective.
