Complex Challenges, Integrated Solutions:
Shaping Our Water Future

We invite you to participate in the 6th biennial UF Water Institute Symposium. We are pleased to announce that Sandra Postel, Director of the Independent Global Water Policy Project will be the Keynote Speaker. Sandra Postel lectures, writes and consults on global water issues. In 2010 she was appointed Freshwater Fellow of the National Geographic Society. Sandra’s new book, Replenish: The Virtuous Cycle of Water and Prosperity, will be released in October 2017.

The Symposium brings together individuals from a broad range of disciplines and organizations to explore water issues from multiple perspectives. The 2018 Symposium will focus on current water use, conservation, restoration, and adaptation efforts and challenges while envisioning new ways of sustaining our water systems. Innovative science, technology, cultural, policy, and management solutions will be explored through presentations, poster sessions and panels in the following areas:

  • Drivers of social, hydrologic, ecologic and economic change
  • Impacts to coastal, surface water, spring and aquifer systems
  • Tradeoffs among water use, conservation, restoration and adaptation
