Cyberseminar on Water and Population Dynamics
Date: September 22, 2015
This cyberseminar focuses on water supplies and population dynamics. Major questions include:
- What are some of the intervening/mediating/contextual factors linking water supply/access and population dynamics, globally and locally?
- Where are some current 'hotspots' of water scarcity, and what are the population dynamics in these hotspots?
- What are some of the current ‘hotspots’ of flooding and drought, and what are the population dynamics in those hotspots?
- Are supply systems for major cities and agricultural areas in most regions adequate to supply domestic, industrial, and agricultural (DIA) needs?
- How can water supply and sanitation systems be bolstered, especially in informal settlements of developing country cities, and issues such as the gender dimension of water access be best addressed?
- What strategies can be deployed for increasing wastewater treatment covering greater proportions of the world’s urban population?
- How might population distribution change in the future as a result of declines or increases in water availability owing to climate change?
- What could be the consequences of these changes?
- What existing/emerging efforts to create governance institutions and strategies for a more sustainable future of water supply may deserve a discussion?
