Water Security & Climate Change Conference 2024

The Water Security and Climate Change Conference (WSCC) is an annual event where scientists, policy makers, and stakeholders from various sectors discuss the diverse facets of water security and its relationship to climate variability and climate change. The conference strives to go beyond science and build bridges between the state-of-the-art in multiple disciplines and different groups of stakeholders and practitioners. The WSCC aims to provide a platform for discussions on water and food secure societies, by creating a stimulating environment that produces innovative ideas and clear pathways towards their implementation. This successful conference has already taken place in Thailand, Germany, Kenya, Mexico, Vietnam, and Ecuador.
The WSCC is an initiative of the ‘Higher Education Excellence in Development Cooperation – exceed’ program. It has been initially implemented under the auspices of the Sustainable Water Management in Developing Countries network (SWINDON) and the Centers for Natural Resources and Development (CNRD) in close cooperation with the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT). The scientific and organizational committee has been continuously expanded and today includes the Food Security Center (FSC) and the SDGnexus Network.
