An Innovative and Cutting-Edge Approach to Addressing Water Crises Critically Impacting Security
Water is recognised as a strategic resource whose management and governance may generate or aggravate crises and conflicts but also has a potential of unifying people across population groups or borders. The World Economic Forum (WEF), in its 2016 Global Risk Report, identifies water crises as one of the main risks in the short and the long term, and it advocates “policy options where multi-stakeholder action is critical.” In adopting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the international community has defined objectives that are consistent with this realisation: Goal 6 aims to “ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all” while Goal 17 intends to “strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development”.
In March 2015, the Globe Expert Advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) system defined governance as one of the key issues impacting water security. Regarding possible resilience solutions designed to prevent water crises, it emphasized: information and communications technology (ICT); technology transfers; and public-private partnerships, thus being totally in line with both the WEF findings and the SDG global strategy.
Multi-stakeholder approaches to water security can only benefit from the analysis and policy tool offered by Artificial Intelligence, at the heart of the concept of this innovative and cutting-edge seminar.
From the Syrian case regarding climate change, water and its impact on security, the panellists will analyse the different features involved in water crises. Their views will be compared with the analyses provided by the Globe Expert Advanced Artificial Intelligence system. Panellists and participants will identify ways and means to detect, prevent or mitigate water crises by fostering multi-stakeholder action.
This course is free of admission. For further details about the seminar and the application process, please contact: Deborah Zdravkovic (firstname.lastname@example.org / +41 (0)22 730 96 64)

GMAP – GLOBE EXPERT
GMAP is an independent research group dedicated to the analysis and forward-looking studies of the major changes of our century. It brings together people from various fields.
GMAP studies are based on analyses provided by the Globe Expert Advanced Artificial Intelligence System used by private and public clients (in aerospace, finance, consumer goods), and recently referenced by the analytical platform of the International Network on Radicalisation and Religious Risk hosted by the University of Quebec at Montreal (UQAM).
