Panel: NYAS and TNC present "From Where Will The Water of the Future Come?"

We will be attending a New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS) and the Nature Conservancy panel on future water sources.  To attend this event you must also register directly with NYAS by clicking here.

Where Will the Water of the Future Come From?

Water is already a crisis for billions globally who lack access to clean drinking water or adequate sanitation. And with the effects of climate change on freshwater supplies and increasing demand for food and energy from a human population slated to grow to more than 9 billion over the next 40 years, water resources will be stressed to almost unimaginable levels. Where will the solutions come from--and can we implement them without destroying biodiversity? Experts on water and climate, cities,
corporations, food security and ecosystems discuss the most promising paths forward.

 

Featuring Panelists:
Brooke Barton, Ceres
Peter Gleick, The Pacific Institute
Manu Lall, Earth Institute, Columbia University
Brian Richter, The Nature Conservancy
Fred Pearce, author, "When the Rivers Run Dry" and "The Land Grabbers" (moderator)

    I look just like my picture, so feel free to sit near me if you see me in the room! Otherwise, I hope that we can see each other after the discussion and talk more about what we learned at the buffet tables. [masked]
