About the event

Integrity Talk 11 - in cooperation with Centro Regional para la Seguridad del Agua bajo los auspicios de la UNESCO (CERSHI)

Large cities like Cape Town, Chennai, Mexico City, São Paulo, and others have recently been in the spotlight as they grapple with acute water crises. Escalating water demand, population growth, drought, aging infrastructure, inadequate water management and overextraction are putting unprecedented pressure on water resources. Threats of severe water shortages have sparked restrictions and intense debates over causes and ways to move forward, including in Mexico City.   Integrity Talk 11, focusing on Latin America, will go behind the scenes and look at governance weaknesses that may be playing a role in the crises, and what to do about them with accountability.

This event will be in Spanish only.

  • Dra. Emilie Dupuits, Professor of International Relations, Universidad San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador
  • Dr. Fermín Reygadas Robles Gil, Director General, Cántaro Azul, Mexico
  • Mr. Cody Copeland, Journalist, United States
  • Ms. Tamara Luengo, Founder, Aqueducto, Mexico
