Topic: Innovative subsurface water solutions (SWS) to improve water management in coastal areas
Highlight the specific challenges of securing a sustainable freshwater supply in coastal areas (seawater intrusion, salinization of well fields, limitations of conventional groundwater management applications)
Present solutions to the specific problems of water management in coastal areas supported by data and information about cases studies where these solutions are successfully applied
Discuss how to transfer the benefits of high-tech advanced solutions to low-tech application
The session will explore the topical theme of using Nature Based Solutions to address catchment wide hydrological issues (e.g. flood risk management and water quality improvements) in both rural and urban settings.
The purpose of the conference will be to stimulate a broadly supported vision on a sustainable world food supply that is based on the interest of farmers as well as on the environment and biodiversity.
Divided on the themes: sustainable agriculture and ecology and ecosystem restoration, sustainable food, water and energy supply, economic and social benefits, food sovereignty and land rights and socialisation of agriculture, projects from Asia, Africa and Latin America will show that a sustainable approach to the region works, motivates people and is beneficial in many ways.
Initiatives, activities, businesses and people from these parts of the world will be associated with Dutch companies, organizations and governments, both during and after the conference.
Lasting relationships between various partners are facilitated and continued through a specifically for this purpose developed website www.sustainablefoodsupply.org.
Dutch companies, industries, research institutes and consultancy firms have the opportunity to present their expertise and techniques at the to the conference linked Table Top Info Market.
The working language of the conference is English.
