Water and society: past, present & future

Two-day conference with world leading speakers.

The availability and management of the water supply has been a key driver in human history ever since the time of the first settlement communities of the Neolithic. It continues to be so today, with anthropogenic climate change further exacerbating the existing water crisis on planet earth. This meeting will consider past, present and future relationships between water and society with a particular focus on the Middle East.

Organised in partnership with the British Academy

This discussion meeting is intended for researchers in relevant fields and is free to attend, but pre-registration online is essential.
