Water Summit for Global Development 2022

Catching up with urbanisation
15 March 2022 | Delft

"Water is a basic human right and should be available to all. Water for food, water for hygiene and water for drinking. The less we have to worry about the availability, quality and cost of water the better human lives and human societies become."

The aim of Water Summit for Global Development 2022 is to promote water research that contributes to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. "We believe in implementation, testing our ideas in the field and that low resources should not necessarily mean low tech. We believe that all of this can only be done together, and thus we focus on building and fostering strong interdisciplinary relationships with a wide variety of stakeholders."

The Water Summit will discuss how multidisciplinary science, technology and innovation can improve access to water and how to achieve this together.
