Session: AIWW Opening Conference Keynotes

At the opening keynotes of the AIWW Conference Leadership Programme 2019, the aim is not to discuss a general ‘sense of urgency’, but rather to start working on the implementation of integrated solutions in water management. A majority of the regions in the world is dealing with water stress on every possible level; from fresh water depletion, vulnerable agricultural supply chains, rapid change in climate, hazardous delta infrastructure, rapid urban growth, to growing economic dependencies. The opening keynotes will focus on the immutable regional and global boundaries, the response to climate change, and short- and long-term actions for the European Union to undertake.

The opening keynotes are accessible for all AIWW Conference delegates.
