About Water Security and Climate Change Conference

The SDGnexus Network, the Centers for Natural Resources and Development (CNRD), the International Network on Sustainable Water Management in Developing Countries (SWINDON), the Food Security Center (FSC) and the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) are pleased to invite the community of renowned water and climate change experts to propose abstracts for the Water Security and Climate Change Conference (WSCC), 21 - 23 November 2023 in Cuenca, Ecuador.

Achieving water security under climate change conditions is one of the major challenges faced by society today – both globally and locally. By building bridges between disciplines, sectors and different stakeholders, the conference provides a platform for international exchange. Consequently, interdisciplinary links are revealed and synergies between scientific evidence and societal and political decisions are released. The conference thus contributes to the formulation of sustainable strategies for water resource management in the face of climate change.

The WSCC 2023 is supported by the Exceed program (Higher Education Excellence in Development Cooperation) and follows a successful series of conferences implemented in Thailand, Germany, Kenya, Mexico, Vietnam, and Thailand between 2016 and 2022.
