"Water resources: it gets complicated!"
From March 22 to 24, 2023, the United Nations will gather in New York to discuss water issues and take stock of the international community's actions and efforts to be continued. The last UN conference on these issues was held in 1977.
This is a historic event and Montpellier and the UNESCO ICIREWARD International Center are taking up these issues with a unique program during the day "From New York to Montpellier, all mobilized for a sustainable water":
- an awareness day for schoolchildren at the Corum, Palais des Congrès, to accompany the younger generations in the face of the challenges to be met (registration closed).
- a conference for the general public "Water resources: it's getting complicated!" to give the keys to understanding the major issues with an eclectic panel of scientific specialists, elected officials and managers:
"Last summer showed us the importance and vulnerability of our water resources. What are the issues and major challenges ahead? What are the constraints and the levers for action? An eclectic panel of scientists, elected officials, managers and users will address issues related to water resources (its evolution, accessibility, quality) and its thorny sharing. Particular emphasis will be placed on the need to regenerate the dialogue between all the actors in the field around crucial questions for each of them.
