7th WaterLinks Forum // Solving Asia’s Urban Water Crisis: The WaterFood-Energy-Climate Change Nexus

This forum is designed to provide urban water managers and policy makers with insights on the interdependence of water, food, and energy in an uncertain, but adverse, climate environment. These are expected to form the basis of integrated solutions to the worsening water crisis in urban Asia.

The organisers expect about 300 participants from more than 20 countries. The high-quality technical sessions and workshops feature speakers and discussants who are global leaders in their fields. There is also an international trade exhibition on water, wastewater and related sectors. You will note from the attached draft program that we feature a half-day seminar on 25 September on “Megacities, Water, and Climate Change” in partnership with UNESCO.
