2016 Center for International Education annual conference: Water-Centric Cities

I hope you'll join us at the CIE's annual conference, this year on the topic of Water-Centric Cities. Description (from the conference site):

To understand the water-centric city is to know it in its most transdisciplinary sense: water consumption, conservation, urban distribution, equity issues, pollution and toxic run-off, and strategies for responsible governance. Over-consumption and climate change threaten water scarcity, and this is felt keenly in cities, our largest consumers of both food and energy. Global cities are developing strategies to address the increasing demands on their water systems as well as issues of inequity in development. Join us at our conference in April, where we will re-define water-centric cities, address planetary limits, challenge current consumption patterns, and develop alternative strategies to promote global resource stewardship. We will examine water scarcity, food security, and energy production, and we will analyze global issues as well as city-level policy reforms to improve water management in the interest of regional stability, global security, and economic and environmental sustainability.
