Fourth International Conference on Water and Society, Seville, 5-7 June, 2017

Organised by the Wessex Institute, UK, the 4th International Conference on Water and Society will be convened at Seville, Spain, on 5-7 June, 2017, following the success of previous meetings held at Las Vegas (USA), New Forest (UK) and La Coruna (Spain) in 2011, 2013 and 2015, respectively. The conference will address in particular the interaction between water and energy, keeping in mind the need to bridge the gap between science, law and other water-related disciplines. The topics to be discussed include water resources management, water as a human right, water quality, water resources contamination, water, sanitation and health, disaster management, policy and legislation, irrigation management, urban water, catchment management and groundwater management and conservation.

The intention of the Water and Society series of conferences is to review these issues, as well as the more technical aspects of water resources management and quality, to help put forward policies and legislation that will lead to improved solutions for all.
