Along with climate change and intensive human activities, global water crisis will be a
longstanding problem faced by people. Safety water is always the top issue in dealing with
water crisis. While water demand and water exploitation are in continuous growing under
social-economy development. Water resources protection and rational water exploitation are
the key to guarantee water security for sustainable development. There exists an obvious
need for global understanding on the relationship between water development and
protection. What is the redline of water environmental capacity for regional exploitation
especially for developing countries?  What are the right policy and feasible countermeasures
for aquatic ecosystem protection taken by the government? Through presentation and
discussion of case-studies and analyses at different scales, this workshop will cover broad
subjects related to water use and water protection: safe drinking water, water pollution,
water-use efficiency, freshwater governance, water-related ecosystems, etc. 

Topics include the role of water quality in the water-energy-food-ecosystem nexus for the goal of sustainable development, specifically in:

  • Water rights and water allocation
  • Safe drinking water strategy
  • Water pollution control
  • High-efficiency sustainable water-use
  • Freshwater governance
  • Water-related ecosystem protection
