IDA 2023 Seville Summit: Addressing climate change impact on water security

  • IDA 2023 Seville Summit: Addressing climate change impact on water security

About the entity

International Desalination Association (IDA)
The International Desalination Association (IDA) is the world’s leading resource for information and professional development for the global desalination industry – and the only global association focused exclusively on desalination and water reuse.

The IDA Seville Summit stands as an unequivocal call to action, acknowledging the profound influence of climate change on our planet's most precious resource: water. The Summit discussion will focus on climate change adaptation and explore the critical interplay between mitigation and adaptation strategies to ensure increased availability of clean water by integrating unconventional water resource solutions to achieve long-term water security. With over two billion people currently devoid of access to clean water and the alarming depletion of major aquifers, there is an urgent need to chart a clear path toward climate change adaptation through a comprehensive water resource management transformation. 

The IDA Seville Summit on Water and Climate Change is strategically aligned with commemorating the association's 50th anniversary. This landmark event is scheduled to transpire from Sunday, October 15, to Tuesday, October 18, 2023, in the splendid city of Seville, Spain. IDA, a recognized consultative NGO by the United Nations, holds a pivotal role in the global efforts to address the critical challenges in water security. 

"IDA is committed to helping shape the future of integrated water resources management, a paradigm poised to safeguard water sources and positively impact facets such as food security, industrial processes, and municipal water requirements. The IDA Seville Summit 2023 is slated to serve as a platform for the convergence of experts, researchers, policymakers, and public and private sector leaders, who will contribute their insights, innovations, and solutions to tackle the pressing challenges of water and climate change. This event is poised to be a congregation of dedicated experts, a catalyst for positive transformation, and a celebration of our shared dedication to a sustainable future. We are honored to have the support of the World Bank and the IFC as Knowledge Partners of the Summit," affirmed Shannon McCarthy, Executive Director of IDA.
