Water Seminar

Among the sub-themes include: sustainable development and water management, public awareness, water education, socio-economic and legal issues, the environment, engineering, modelling and traditional water management

Water is an integral part of nature and society. Water sustains nature which in turn supports society. Water, it passes through both human and natural systems dispensing ‘life’ as it goes on day and night without fail for ages. It inspired man and upon it great civilizations were built. Nonetheless, it is neither a commodity which we have the right to own nor a resource which can never be exhausted. Since it sustains us and the nature which supports us, we are both the custodian and debtor to it. Yet, today the world around us is plagued with water issues such as water pollution, destruction of water catchments, droughts, floods and so on as man dominates his natural world. Thus, this seminar is aimed towards bringing ourselves the stakeholders to a realisation that we must work together to ensure water is managed in a sustainable manner for the good of all
