Event Water and Peace Conference

The Global Water Alliance (GWA), Drexel Peace Engineering and the Water Center at Penn is organising the 2020 conference on Water and Peace on 24 September. The event will be held online.

All people and every ecology share a stake in the proper management of water to safeguard supply quality, fair access, and peace. A history of water use without proper planning and stakeholder involvement has led to global conflict and inequity, especially in regions of water scarcity, drought, natural disaster, pollution, or social/political turmoil.

The Water and Peace conference will convene local, national, and international water professionals and researchers/students to discuss “water, sanitation, and hygiene” (WASH) strategies and governance for security, sustainability, and resiliency with an eye to peace norms and ethics. This will include identifying the key elements of a modern water management toolkit and preparing for the 2021 World Water Forum in Senegal with guest speakers and panelists from all over the world.
