Abstract:

In his presentation, Angelos Findikakis, from Bechtel Corporation and Stanford University, focused on outlining policies as a system of principles that guide governance, how and why policies are needed to facilitate the search for, and the adaptation of, effective solutions to address water security, formulating development goals (such as the SDGs), providing solutions to water supply by deploying new principles, providing protection from catastrophic water events and what can scientific and engineering associations, such as IAHR, do to help overcome some of the obstacles to providing solutions to water security.
