International  Workshop on

“Linking Water Security to the Sustainable Development Goals”

August 29 – September 01, 2018, São Paulo, Brazil

Water Security is emerging as a primary sustainability challenge across the globe in the 21st century. It is a determinant for security in various societal and environmental aspects including food, energy, economy, environment and public health, and thus has a complex  political momentum that goes far beyond the traditional water sector. To understand, project, address and plan for water security challenges, we must collectively understand exposure to climate and environment driven hazards, as well as socio-economic determinants, and the cultural and political context within which we live, work and play. Technologies (ranging from model-based scenarios and predictions to green and grey infrastructure and treatment systems, and from remote sensing to social media) and innovative financing and governance systems are being proposed to address water security.


On the completion of the International Workshop, the attendees will have the opportunity to acquire knowledge on Water Security considering water governance and management, technological innovation and emerging solutions for water conservation, reuse and recycle in order to achieve de Sustainable Development Goals proposed by the United Nations. More specifically, each participant will be equipped with essential state-of-the art knowledge concerning:

  • The Water Security and its role in addressing the Sustainable Development Goals
  • Challenges and opportunities to reach Water Security considering quality and availability
  • Water Security lessons learned and long term implications in developing countries
