Event description

Join the CIWEM South Eastern branch for an evening talk on the challenges and opportunities of adapting the global water system to climate change within the context of a growing population.

Water interacts with many aspects of our lives, from the water we use in our tea, agriculture, recreation, flood, drought, power generation and manufacturing. Our lifestyle choices affect the global water system in ways that are invisible and often geographically remote from us.

This talk aims to summarise some of the implications of a changing climate on water availability, providing examples of how the stresses on the water system have wide ranging impacts perhaps in unexpected ways. The talk will also look at the Medway Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) initiative. A campus wide initiative at Greenwich University to promote the SDGs and more sustainable practices.

The talk will end with a summary with some of the potential solutions or adaptive mechanisms that may be needed in the face of competing demand for water.

The speaker at this evening talk will be Dr Conor Walsh, an Environmental Scientist, at Agriculture, Health and Environment Department, Natural Resources Institute, Faculty of Engineering & Science.
