The SEC Academic Conference “The Future of Water: Regional Collaboration on Shared Climate, Coastlines, and Watersheds,” hosted by Mississippi State University in Starkville, MS, is designed to stimulate collaboration toward sustainable and resilient water resource management in the Southeast. The conference will provide an interactive atmosphere and encourage partnerships between academics and agencies to identify pathways to maximize the health and vitality of the region through water stewardship.
One of the most urgent challenges facing the Southeast and the nation today is ensuring an adequate supply and quality of water for human consumption, industry, agriculture, tourism, environment, and quality of life.
The intersection of science, engineering, and policy are of pressing interest to practitioners, academics, and policy shapers alike. By drawing from a broad spectrum of stakeholders, the conference will relate these water issues to climate change, water quantity and quality, the built environment, coastal issues, and ecosystem function in order to enable sustainable ecosystems, economies, and communities.
