Water Security for All in a World of Scarcity
April 16, 2015World Bank Headquarters, Washington, D.C.

Time: 3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. | 19:30 - 21:30 GMT

Water security is emerging as the number one global risk in terms of development impact. While the impacts are felt most acutely in the arid, water scarce regions of the world, climate change and rapid urbanization have increased water scarcity for other regions, as well. Fast-growing cities in water-scarce environments are the most vulnerable. 

During the event, local leaders and other key stakeholders will share their experiences and solutions for addressing water scarcity challenges with a view of the social, economic, and political implications. The panelists have worked on some of the most innovative management approaches and technologies now being deployed in the sector and will discuss some of the key challenges as well as positive lessons on how these can be used more widely to enhance water security globally.
