The New Politics of Water

Start Date:14 Jun 11 End Date:15 Jun 11

The New Politics of Water
Water security and economic growth in emerging economies

Do major emerging economies have enough water to support their economic growth?

Water is a critical global issue and demand will rapidly outstrip supply, especially in fast-growing emerging economies. Water extraction, storage, and use can cause radical change to ecosystems, with wide-ranging impacts.

Recognition has grown among governments, business, international organizations and civil society of the scale and complexity of the water challenge and the shared risks involved. Focusing on the major emerging economies, this conference will address key issues including

• the complexities of transboundary water agreements: are new foreign policy approaches required?
• what national plans are for water management in emerging economies
• how industrial policy and economic growth will be shaped in dry countries
• what policy innovations can tackle water scarcity
• which technological innovations can increase water productivity
• what new partnerships and structures can unlock investment in water
