Global Water Summit 2016-Water 2050

Water and Climate Change Adaptation

Historically, water investment follows economic growth. In these circumstances new infrastructure is not only needed, but it pays for itself. Climate change breaks this connection; a world in which we must prepare for both extremes of floods and droughts with no additional income streams to meet the cost. We bring together ministerial level speakers from

across the world to discuss how to meet this challenge and how international cooperation might play a role in the solution.

Global Water Summit 2016-Water 2050

Water and Climate Change Adaptation

Historically, water investment follows economic growth. In these circumstances new infrastructure is not only needed, but it pays for itself. Climate change breaks this connection; a world in which we must prepare for both extremes of floods and droughts with no additional income streams to meet the cost. We bring together ministerial level speakers from

across the world to discuss how to meet this challenge and how international cooperation might play a role in the solution.
