- PROJECT STATUS :
The Water Future Conference will focus on the current state of global water resource challenges, future pathways and scenarios, and different technological, institutional solutions to accelerate the implementation of water-related Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda targets without leaving no one behind.
On 27 September 2019, UNU-FLORES PhD Researcher Thuy Nguyen will present on the “Application of Multivariate Statistical Methods to Evaluate and Adjust Water Quality Monitoring Network in Freiberger Mulde River Basin, Germany” under the theme “Water Quality”, and PhD alumnus Dr Mahesh Jampani will give an oral presentation titled “Sustainable Groundwater Management Strategies for a Wastewater Irrigated Agriculture System” and will also be actively part of the water SDGs stakeholder meetings.
Water Future Conference is the first international conference organised by the Sustainable Water Future Programme (Water Future) of Future Earth. Around 700 participants all across the globe are expected to attend the conference, thus, giving a major opportunity for academics, water practitioners, policymakers, scientists, civil society, and government officials to discuss the direction that the global science community should take in order to solve the myriad of challenges affecting our water systems in real time, and develop new frontiers for innovative solutions. The conference will be a forerunner to a high-level political event called the Budapest Water Summit scheduled a month after this conference. The outcome of the conference is expected to be a valuable input to this summit in Budapest.
