Meeting our global water challenges is no ordinary task: it is a matter of survival. As global climate patterns shift, access to clean water will become more challenging; water will grow scarcer in some places, while others will suffer from too much. The Global High-Level Panel on Water and Peace, convened by a coalition of 15 countries, has developed a set of recommendations designed to prevent water-related conflicts and to enable water management be an instrument of peace, not war.

 

On January 16, you are invited to a discussion with President Danilo Türk, Chair of the Panel on Water and Peace and former President of Slovenia, who will be joined by leaders from the U.S. and around the world to share their insights on water and peace, and bring into focus the new U.S. Global Water Strategy. This high-level, half-day event will provide an opportunity for U.S. water sector leaders to spur actionable partnerships and innovative, integrated solutions to the global water challenge.

 

Breakfast will be available at 9:15am.
