..:: The Future of Water and Humanity

In cooperation with local and international sponsors and partners, IKED engages in "The Future of Water and Humanity" a multi-stakeholder initiative that serves to highlight new solutions and realise untapped opportunities to address grave challenges confronting us all in regard to the management of the world's water resources.

The next major international event of "Water & Humanity" is scheduled for Dec 8-9, 2021, in Muscat, Oman, back-to-back with the first Global Forum organised in the Middle East, Dec 6-7, also in Muscat. Being independent and operating cross-border, Water and Humanity adopts a holistic approach linking diverse interests and competencies in realizing untapped opportunitie in how to resolve some of the most severe outstanding challenges of our time. The upcoming conference is sponsored by the Dutch, Swedish, and Oman governments along with a host of other organisations, private, public, academic, and NGOs.

As an example of one of the activities, supported by IKED and URBiBAT, a series of Youth Workshops, involving children as well as their teachers and schools, has been undertaken on the theme “Valuing Water”. The initiative was launched at the National Museum of Oman on December 13, 2019. Thus far carried out in Germany, Italy, Iran and South Africa, in addition to Oman, this strand of activity has proven hugely successful in the engagement of children in issues of water management, linking the past, present, and the future, serving as an eye-opener to many of the participants. Some 250 children or so have taken part to date. We view this activity as a lead-in to a new format for cross-border collaboration, with children in the driving seat. The workshops undertaken in South Africa in the fall of 2020 is set to be followed by diffusion to other African countries in 2021.
