This meeting will encourage trans-disciplinary communication on issues related to the nature of water, and its use and exploitation by society. The ..
conference is motivated by the need to bridge the gap between the broad spectrum of social-political sciences and humanistic disciplines and specialists in physical sciences, biology, environmental sciences and health, among others. Policymakers need to be educated and advised on developing policies and regulations that will support the water systems of tomorrow. The role of society and its involvement with water is paramount. To meet the future demands for water, new standards, new training and additional support roles will best be delivered by those knowledgeable of new technologies. The intention of the Water and Society series of conferences is to review these issues, as well as the more technical aspects of water resources management and quality, to help put forward policies and legislation that will lead to improved solutions for all.
