A Water-Smart Society For A Post-COVID19 Green Deal
In 2050, Europe aims to be the world’s first climate-neutral continent implementing the European Green Deal: an ambitious package of measures to deeply transform our economy and society. In the meantime, the COVID-19 crisis has been a wake-up call for Europe’s need to a new paradigm towards a Water-Smart Society, from crisis management to risk management and prevention.
Among the key questions the WIE2020 digital edition addresses are:
How can water enable the European society to prevent crises, ensure resiliency and reboot our economy after and beyond the COVID19 crisis?
How can we make sure that water efficiency gains at an individual level are translated into long-term water security in a context of climate change adaptation?
How to fuel research, technological development, and wider sectoral policy coordination to tackle urgent global water and food systems challenges?
How to halt the loss of aquatic biodiversity through 2030 through inclusive models gathering the public sector, the private sector and civil society?
How to move away from conventional, linear approaches to tackle water quality deterioration, towards circularity and industrial symbiosis?
Join the WIE2020 digital edition to get answers to these questions, gain new insights, debate and discuss.
