The TWAS Science Diplomacy Workshop on Sustainable Water Management – to take place in Trieste, Italy, from 30 November to 4 December 2015 – will expose participants to some key contemporary international policy issues relating to science diplomacy and sustainable water management.

Among the topics to be covered during the workshop are: the use of shared rivers and underground aquifers; cross-border pollution issues; safe drinking water. There will likely also be the opportunity to visit a local water purification plant.

Applications are invited from young scientists, policymakers and diplomats, especially from developing countries.
