Scenarios for Future Water Security 

GWI Workshop

Brussels, 22 March, 2013

10.00-17.00


1. Workshop Outline

Could policymakers alter the future of water security just by laying various cards on the table and questioning alternative options?  

Could strategists create scenarios which pre-set the proper actions to do to secure water and make it accessible to all African people by 2025?

Water security is a large and complex issue encompassing the many efforts required to assure a safer environment for prosperous economies now and in the future. Water withdrawals are projected to increase by 50% and 18% by 2025 in the developing and developed world, respectively, due to both population and industrial growth.

The proportion of the African population at risk of water stress and scarcity will increase to 65% in 2025. This could generate conflicts over water, particularly in arid and semi-arid regions.

Are strategists able to underlie formulas to be utilized for the achievements of any water strategic plan applicable in 2025?  The GWI’s 2013 workshop "Scenarios for Future Water Security" will tackle this important topic.
