UVa. Hosts World Water Day Symposium

March 21, 2014

Water touches every aspect of our lives, but how often do you think about sustaining that resource responsibly?

That was the topic at the University of Virginia on Friday at the World Water Symposium. Experts in the field began a conversation about finding solutions to the world's water supply issues. It was an opportunity for water experts at the university to learn from each other, but also make people aware of what they say is the threat of water scarcity.

Peter Debaere with the Darden School of Business says, "Water is not a free resource, it's a public good and it's incredibly important going forward how we manage this public good."

Topics today included sustaining water in an era of climate change and the health impact of having poor access to water and how to help people improve it.
