WSCC 2022 – Interdisciplinary exchange continues
Water Security and Climate Change conference 2022
The Water Security and Climate Change conference (WSCC) was held from December 1-3, 2022. The event was hosted by the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), which welcomed about 270 participants in Bangkok, Thailand. As in the previous year, WSCC 2022 was organized in a hybrid way and participation was also possible remotely. This extended the reach of the WSCC and the conference continued the success of the previous years. A diverse group of stakeholders from academia, policy, industry, and civil society from more than 30 countries attended 34 thematic sessions, seven keynotes speeches, and panel discussions. In this way, the WSCC in 2022 was again characterized by a high level of transdisciplinary interaction and achieved its goal of connecting stakeholders and decision makers from different sectors.
The WSCC was founded in 2016 in the context of the cooperation of distinguished university networks that emerged from the DAAD’s ‘Higher Education Excellence in Development Cooperation – exceed’ program. Since then, the WSCC has been held annually and has grown over time, not only in terms of participants but also in terms of the organizing committee. The WSCC is now organized by numerous networks and partners who join their forces and expertise in order to release synergies. The WSCC 2022 was organized by the Sustainable Water Management in Developing Countries network (SWINDON), Centers for Natural Resources and Development (CNRD), Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Food Security Center (FSC), the SDGnexus Network, and the Global Water and Climate Adaptation Centre (ABCD Centre).
On the WSCC website you will find the recorded sessions, keynotes and panel discussion as well as many pictures and impressions.
We are very pleased to announce that the WSCC conference series will continue in 2023 in Chennai, India and plans are already in place for the following year. We are looking forward to a prospering future and cooperation within the WSCC community.
