Water is a dealmaker for Sustainable Development Goals, and for the health of people and the planet. But progress on water-related goals and targets remains alarmingly off track, jeopardizing the entire sustainable development agenda.
Scientists warned that the demand for water is expected to exceed supply by 40% at the end of this decade, calling for getting the pricing of water right and making water management and conservation systems sustainable. The situation is even more critical in the islands.µ
Ahead of the United Nations (UN) Water Conference that will take place from March 22nd to 24th, Island Innovation is organizing a virtual event on Water Resources for Islands.
It will explore innovative solutions to water challenges facing islands, including sustainable water management practices, new technologies, and policy approaches. The expert speakers will share their experiences working on water issues in island contexts and discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with sustainable water management.

Participants will have the opportunity to engage in discussions with the expert panel and fellow participants to exchange ideas and best practices.
