Water, Climate, and Society: Challenges and Strategies in a Rapidly Changing World


Philomathia Symposium 2013

November 1, 2013

David Brower Center, 2150 Allston Way, Berkeley

Join us as we hear from leaders who will address the challenges and adaptation strategies relating to water, climate, and societal issues in a rapidly changing world. 

Water plays a critical role at the intersection of physical, biological, and social systems. Its scarcity and excess pose multifaceted challenges as reliable water supplies are essential for food production, national security, industry, energy generation, and residential use.

The symposium will connect people, and advance pioneering science as academics, decision-makers, and stakeholders, including authors of the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) participate in detailed panel discussions on two interdisciplinary themes: 1) the future of urban water, and strategies for water management and infrastructure; and 2) the impact of changing water supplies on food supplies, security, population, and the natural environment.
