UNIUYO AND GIST JOINT PROGRAMME WORKSHOP

WATER SECURITY FOR A SUSTAINED TRANSFORMATION

UNIUYO AND GIST JOINT PROGRAMME WORKSHOP

WATER SECURITY FOR A SUSTAINED TRANSFORMATION

Both developed and developing countries are confronted with the urgent need to support the increasing water-related demands of growing populations and of the energy, industrial and agricultural sectors, as well as to respond to environmental concerns with sources of water that are scarce, over-exploited or too polluted for the intended uses. In spite of its relevance in terms of security, water is often not regarded as a key determinant for development, absent from many political agenda.

To address this important resource and the challenges in managing this resource, the International Centre for Energy and Environmental Sustainability Research (ICEESR), University of Uyo in collaboration with International Environmental Research Centre (IERC), Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea is jointly organizing a workshop to be held in the beautiful city of Abuja, Nigeria on June 15-18, 2015.
