2ND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE WATER, MEGACITIES AND GLOBAL CHANGE - POSTPONED
The Second International Conference Water, Megacities and Global Change, also known as EauMega 2021, and organized by the Division of Water Sciences of UNESCO, will be held in December 2021, at UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France.
Following the postponement of the Second International Conference to December 2021, the Steering and Programme Committees have decided to hold an Online pre-conference event from 7 to 11 December 2020.
All Megacities - urban centers which accommodate more than 10 million inhabitants - are facing major challenges related to providing water services for their inhabitants, while managing their environment. Climate change effects of intensifying magnitude such as sea level rise, increasing temperatures or urbanization, threaten these cities.
Now, there is a need for action in order to achieve resilient cities.A transversal and multidimensional solution is proposed, based on the collaboration among scientists who advance knowledge, operators (from both the public and private sectors) who innovate technically and socio-politically, and local politicians who can support new, fairer and more efficient models of water governance, in constant interaction with civil society.
