“Linking Water Security to the Sustainable Development Goals”

August 29th – September 1st 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.

Expert Workshop on “Wastewater Treatment and Reuse for Metropolitan Regions and small Cities in Developing Countries

September 13th – 17th, 2016 // Recife, Brazil

Sustainable water management is essential for the social, economic and environmental growth of developing countries. The high growth rates resulted in massive migration from rural to urban/metropolitan areas. Water supply of good quality and adequate quantity impaired severe constraints for the population.

The use of conventional treatment technology, as well as advanced alternatives for treatment and post-treatment of wastewater, including the questions of plant scale in centralised or decentralised systems and possible reuase of effluents, are aimed for presentation and discussion about theoretical and practical aspects.

Expert Workshop on “Water Scarcity

September 14th – 18th, 2015 // San Juan, Argentina

Water scarcity is a constantly growing problem worldwide, not only in arid and semiarid regions. United Nations define Water Scarcity as: the point at which the aggregate impact of all users impinges on the supply or quality of water under prevailing institutional arrangements to the extent that the demand by all sectors, including the environment, cannot be satisfied fully. In addition, water scarcity is constantly aggravated by factors such as climate change, population growth, economic development and devastation of natural resources.

This Regional Workshop aims to bring together experts from different fields to exchange and share their experiences and research results about aspects of Water Scarcity, and discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted.

Applying researchers are requested to submit (upload) also an abstract about an oral presentation to be given during the course of the summer/winter school. The topic covered in the presentation shall be related to the topic of theworkshop.

The participants expected are preferably Researchers, Professors, Post-Graduates dedicated to topics related to sustainable water management.
