27 August – 1 September, 2017
At World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden, IWMI researchers will weigh in on global water issues, contributing to several sessions focused on the 2017 theme Water and waste – reduce and reuse. The Institute figures as a key collaborating partner in this year’s event, which is organized by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI). It provides an opportunity for scientists, policy makers and representatives of the private sector and civil society to foster new thinking and collaborative action on today’s most pressing water-related challenges.
Making the most of agriculture’s only expanding resource
Rapid urbanization in the developing world is pushing up demand for water and food, while also generating ever larger volumes of wastewater. Especially near cities, farmers are intensifying food production to meet increased demand, often using wastewater to irrigate crops all year round. The serious consequences of this practice, its wide scope and possible solutions are the subject of a new document, which presents key facts and figures to put wastewater issues in perspective.
Water solutions for a changing world
The International Water Management Institute (IWMI) delivers a steady stream of valuable knowledge and evidence-based policy advice, while strengthening national capacities to address key water-related development challenges.
