Nations from around the world representing 90% of global GDP have all committed to achieving carbon neutrality. The water sector plays a significant role, as a contributor to Green House Gas emissions (GHG’s) and also by presenting opportunities. This Global Online Dialogue seeks to improve our understanding on the issues, innovations and solutions in the water sector in order to help nations and societies to achieve carbon neutrality. The presentations will provide expert insight into the practical application of technical and scientific knowledge or the identification of best practices across key areas such as:
Water-related renewable energies / water for energy
Realising energy (and water) efficiencies
Reducing water related GHG emissions and increasing capabilities for carbon storage
This online event seeks to lay out the challenge before us. How can engineering knowledge, science, practice and technology bring about solutions and pathways for industry and governments to achieve carbon neutrality? Where can the biggest advances be made? What are the research and engineering priorities?
Global experts from academia, private sector and government will come together to discuss and present ways that hydro-environment engineering and research can contribute to solutions and identify those agendas that will have the greatest impact for reaching net zero carbon.
