Together with local and international partners, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung jointly invites to a workshop on the precious topic of water management on June 5, 2016.

Also available in Deutsch

The workshop takes place under the framework of the 2nd Transoceanic Water Source Summit and is the kick-off of a workshop series related to the topic of Circular Economy.

China is facing great challenges of both water shortage and serious water pollution. The State Council released China’s Water Pollution Control Action Plan earlier this year to combat illegal sewage discharge and to promote innovative treatment technologies. Shanghai, as one of the largest and most populous cities in China, is at the forefront of providing innovative solutions for municipal water management.

While Shanghai has tackled the challenge since the 2010 World Expo ‘Better City – Better Life’, Hamburg has been prioritizing sustainable water management since becoming the European Green Capital in 2011 and many other cities across the globe face similar challenges.

For the workshop we are glad to welcome water experts from both, the city of Shanghai and Hamburg. The 2nd Transoceanic Water Summit will bring together representatives from arts, business, science, and the public sector to discuss challenges and solutions in the field of water management. The workshop aims to promote a cultural, scientific and practical exchange among practioners from different sectors.
