Riversymposium 2013: a bridge between food, water and energy

Riversymposium 2013: a bridge between food, water and energy

Food, water, and energy professionals must all share scarce freshwater resources. But do we share, or do we compete? And is the process constructive?

If you work in one of these sectors, you might have wondered if better integration is possible.

Find the answers at the 16th International Riversymposium. Food, water and energy professionals from across the globe will gather in Brisbane from September 23-26 to connect, learn from each other, and share solutions.

Examples of possible issues on the program include:

  • How do we reconcile demands for biofuels with food production and finite water supply?
  • Are energy-intensive water supply solutions like desalination and inter-basin pipelines sustainable?
  • What is the best use for ‘produced water’ from coal seam gas extraction?
  • Can urban food production play a serious role in tackling the food security challenge?

Earlybird registration for Riversymposium is now open at riversymposium.com
