Webinar series: Sharing International Experiences on Water Supply

Ongoing climate change, growing global populations and the intensification of economic activities is increasing the demand for global water supply. Innovative and appropriate solutions are needed to manage the pressure on water resources. To stimulate innovation and deliver new technologies and integrated solutions, collaborative and interdisciplinary water management process, strategies and policies across the water value chain are required.

In fact, addressing pressures on water resources is a shared responsibility. Much can be learned from one another, emphasising the value of sharing knowledge, expertise and experiences on applied research, novel business models and knowhow. This may contribute to make water management and supply more sustainable, productive and/or efficient for the future.

Join international experts in the webinar series ‘Sharing International Experiences on Water Supply’ to share and discuss new perspectives and insights on water supply.

Webinar 1: Water reuse and alternative sources

18 November 2021, 13:00 – 14:00h

Increasing water demand is placing pressure on water resources and leading to greater water scarcity. The growing demand for water supply from water users across sectors will compel those dealing with water supply to look to alternative sources of water as well as improved water reuse techniques to guarantee water availability and supply now and in the future.

Join Clive Lipchin (Director of Center for Transboundary Water Management with the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies) and Dr. Louise Vanysacker (Research and Development Manager with De Watergroep) who will share their experiences in Israel and Belgium, respectively.

The webinar is organised by the Joint Research Programme of the Dutch and Flemish drinking water sector and Watershare on 18 November 2021 from 13:00-14:00 (NL local time). This webinar on water reuse and alternative sources is the first in a series of eight webinars on ‘Sharing International Experiences on Water Supply’. Click here to register.
