IAHR Global Online Dialogue on Water Engineering Pathways Towards Net Zero

This webinar starts at 12:30noon UTC | 1:30pm Madrid | 8:30pm Beijing |  8:30am New York | Thursday, March. 28, 2024

This webinar, titled "Water Engineering Pathways Towards Net Zero," aims to explore the vital role of water in climate change mitigation and adaptation. It focuses on how hydraulic infrastructures support crucial systems like hydropower, flood prevention, and water treatment globally. Organized by IAHR, this event brings together experts to discuss water's role in achieving the Paris Agreement's goals and SDG6. The session will highlight the interdependency between water management and climate action, emphasizing the need for sustainable mitigation efforts and further research in this area.
