Event description

Description

On 8 – 9 November 2016 the UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources (UCL ISR) will be hosting a two-day conference in London. Being the 5th in a series of BHP Billiton Sustainable Communities/UCL Grand Challenge Symposia it will particularly be addressing Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 to “ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all” as well as to critical implications for other resources such as energy and materials needed to establish water provisioning systems (see SDG 12.2).

It will aim to discuss possible water supply scarcities in the future, analyse water markets and policies, as well as modelling approaches interlinking those issues. Finally, it will conclude with a discussion on future water management systems.

The programme will consist of a mix of plenary, panel and networking sessions with speakers from both UCL and other universities in the UK and overseas as well as featuring grassroots community organisations to high profile national and international speakers.
