3rd Istanbul International Water Forum on water security and international water law

27-29 may 2013, Isttambul

 3rd Istanbul International Water Forum on water security and international water law
Water security is central to the complex and cross-sectoral nature of human and economic development. Whereas agriculture currently uses 70% of the world’s water ; how will water contribute to ensuring food security when 70% more food is predicted to be needed by 2050 ? Given that energy needs water and water supply and sanitation needs energy, what role will water and energy play to ensure that populations can meet their future needs ? For industry based economies or economies wishing to industrialise, industrial water accounts for up to 40% of total withdrawals in some high-income countries ; how can these populations maintain water security ? Closely linked to all these sectors is the important issue of water for human well-being and the human right to water and sanitation.
