Welcome to Global Water Summit
The Water Risk Nexus
Water risk is the most important challenge the global economy will face over the next decade
Consider the following:
The impact of climate change is being felt first through the world’s water systems
As demand for energy, food, fibre, and mineral resources increases, so competition for water resources rises exponentially
The water infrastructure deficit is widening rapidly as a result of accelerated urbanisation and weakening public finances
What this means is that each of us, over the next decade, will experience a water related event: a shortage, a flood, an infrastructure failure, an interruption to business, an economic disruption - which will have a bigger impact on our lives than we have ever experienced before. The challenge the world faces is to minimise the impact of these events through better water risk management.
On 22nd and 23rd April 2013 water leaders from around the world will be meeting in Seville to address this challenge. It is a problem which can only be solved by bringing together all of the interested parties:
Water ministers and utility chief executives who take responsibility for water infrastructure
Business leaders who rely on water to maintain their production
Investors who are concerned about the impact of water risk on their portfolios
Engineers and water technologists who can provide the solutions
This is the nexus of ideas and interests that will make the difference. It creates a forum where the business water users can make the economic case for infrastructure investment to the political leaders, who in turn can discuss the funding challenge with investors. who in turn can meet the technology providers, who need capital in order to develop the solutions.
Come and be part of the conversation that will make the difference.
Connecting With Success
Organised by Global Water Intelligence, the Global Water Summit is the only event of its kind: an agenda-defining conference that brings together the highest level delegates from around the world, while maintaining the open and intimate atmosphere of a boardroom meeting.
The event is split into three different formats - keynote sessions, themed break-out strands, and round table meetings - to ensure you get the big picture, the granular detail, and all the contacts to connect with success in 2013.
"Rome was my first Global Water Summit but it will not be my last! I found every aspect of the Summit to be excellent from the venue to the presentations. The roundtable presentations were valuable in meeting new people especially when considered with all the available opportunities for additional networking."
