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 socio-political sciences and humanistic disciplines and specialists in physical sciences, biology, environmental sciences and health, among others.
The socio-political implications of a world short of clean, easily available water are enormous. Coupled with the increasing demands for energy, it will lead to realignments in international politics and the emergence of new centres of power in the world.
