Protecting the World's Water Supply - Part 3: Climate Change, Sustainability, and Water

April 14, 2021

According to the United Nations, by 2050 1.6 billion people will be at risk of floods and 3.2 billion people are projected to live in severely water scarce areas. This poses a major threat for individuals, businesses, industries, economies, and entire countries. At this session, we will hear from experts from a leading environmental firm, global company, and a Maryland government agency, who are working to solve and mitigate water challenges and related effects of climate change. Our panel will discuss innovations in flood resiliency and water quality improvement in Maryland and beyond.
