Moving forward with our vision to promote expertise, bridge interdisciplinary fields holistically and generate long term sustainable development changes, we incorporated 7 of the 17 goals of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a universal framework that not many in our global communities are yet aware.
The key water issues emphasized at the Symposium covered wetlands, seas, oceans and coastlines, urban and rural areas, the right to water and sanitation and challenges facing the wellbeing of the community, education, health and sanitation, forests and on a myriad of other relevant drivers that clearly say “Water is Life: Save it.”
