The International Water Resources Association is pleased to announce its upcoming online conference on “One Water, One Health: Water, Food and Public Health in a Changing World” to take place from Monday, June 7th, to Wednesday, June 9th, 2021. You are cordially invited to participate!
As much of 2020 has been focused on public health with the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting farming, production, and shipping, the fragilities of the interconnected systems are more apparent than ever. Water is a critical factor in both agriculture and food processing, as well as in nutrition and broader human health issues. This complex nexus of sectors are often treated separately, from both a science and a policy perspective. Examining the inter-linkages between water, food and public health is now more critical than ever, especially as the world changes in response to the stressors of pandemics, climate change, population growth and urbanisation.
IWRA’s online conference aims, therefore, to facilitate and inspire dialogue, knowledge sharing, and science-based solutions for the sustainable management of water resources across all sectors, scales and communities at the interface between science and policy on this crucial, timely theme.
Stay tuned for more information and details shortly on the conference themes and sub-themes, the International Scientific Committee (ISC), welcome messages from IWRA President and ISC chairs, conference programme, key dates, call for abstracts, and much more.
