Description

The Future of Water

Water security—having sufficient access to safe water for our daily lives—is at risk with a variety of scientific, technical, and policy challenges facing both developed and developing nations. Today, more than 800 million people lack access to safe drinking water at home, and by 2025, over half of the world’s population is expected to reside in water-stressed areas. Globally, shifting patterns of water availability, falling groundwater levels, and new extremes—from persistent droughts to regular floods—will create risks to people’s health, our food supply, and the environment.

On the morning of March 22, World Water Day, please join The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, and The Pew Charitable Trusts for a conversation about the future of water. We look forward to engaging with you on key questions about water resources and security.

  • Elizabeth Eide (moderator)
    Director, Water Science and Technology Board, The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine
  • Tom Dillon
    Vice president, international environment, The Pew Charitable Trusts
  • Jay Famiglietti
