Chevening’s Alumni Sustainability Network is pleased to invite you to the second event in their Climate COP26 series: Adaptation and Water Management, on Thursday 6 May…

Tickets are now live and can be booked here

This webinar will take a hard look at the essential role that water plays in adaptation to climate change. Growing populations require safe, clean water for drinking, sanitation, agriculture and much more. Novel technology can help to safeguard this precious resource, but often the challenges facing water access require a much broader set of tools. Where water resources are shared between communities and countries, collaborative resource management and governance is also needed to manage inter-country trade relations and potential conflicts.

This month we join two water management experts in our Chevening Alumni network as they explore the ways they are contributing to the landscape of solutions in this dynamic space. This will be followed by a networking session for Chevening Alumni and scholars.

Our speakers:

Dr. Fabiola Alvarado-Revilla is a Water Governance and Policy expert, and post-doc researcher in adaptive water governance.

Tabitha Wacera is the Founder of Sustainable Water and is empowering those without water to “erase the water walk” by accessing sustainable technology.
