The growth of human population combined with the irregularity in precipitation and water availability may restrict even further the access to water in certain regions of the world. This problem is made more severe by anthropogenic activities that affect the quality of the water available.
The objective of the meeting was to provide an opportunity for the scientists, experts and practitioners to exchange their knowledge and experiences. Only by comparisons of the performance of the current technologies and practices the best platforms can be selected as the basis for future improved strategies. It becomes apparent that the goal of sustainable water resources management is not static; it changes as the conditions in the world alter due to, for instance to growing population and climate change. Therefore the developments in the field must respond with the same agility. New ways of thinking are required in order to successfully predict future trends and prepare adequate sustainable solutions.
