Water: Quenching the Planet's Insatiable Thirst

Water scarcity is poised to become the next explosive issue of our time. It's the world's most essential - and most threatened - finite resource. From the American Southwest to sub-Saharan Africa to the Middle East, people are working to find solutions and forge compromises to ensure that water continues to flow. This timely conversation will examine opportunities for investment and the role of nonprofits and corporations in heading off a crisis, with the latest updates from experts in the field. Everything is fair game in this critical, solutions-oriented panel, including new technologies for storage, treatment and efficiency; aging infrastructure; the increasing demand for recycled water; and the impact of climate change and population growth.
