Globally, water security is emerging as one of the main sustainability challenges. It is a critical factor for security in many societal and environmental issues and therefore has many far reaching apprehensions that lie beyond the traditional water sector. In order to study, project, deal with and plan for water security issues, it is imperative that we understand the socio-economic problems, environmental challenges and political barriers that we face when addressing the topic of water.
Making sure that we have access to uncontaminated and reliable water sources is vital. Geospatial technology can aid us in under standing how water systems are impacted by various factors and how to preserve water quantity and quality for the long term. The event will focus on how geospatial and other enabling technologies can help to solve societal challenges around water. Issues like water scarcity, water pollution and water and health will be on the agenda. Viewpoints from businesses, science and politics will be brought to forward by key-note speakers. In interactive sessions and on during the exhibition, the topics will be elaborated further and business and development opportunities will be explored.
