Jal Bhagirathi Foundation, India
We live in a time in which forced migrations are occuring on an unprecedented scale and are directly or indirectly impacting us all. So many of these forced migrations are triggered by conflict over scarce or depleting natural resources such as water and there is an urgent need for collaboration to find new and innovative ways to address this global challenge. We invite you to come to this side event and explore the linkages between forced migrations and water sustainability; brainstorm to conceptualize solutions as well as share experiences of reversing forcing migrations in other contexts. The event will be facilitated by Dr. Rajendra Singh, founder Trustee of Jal Bhagirathi Foundation, also known as the "Water Gandhi" and the recipient of many awards such as the prestigious Stockholm Water Prize 2015 and the Ramon Magsaysay Award.
