OECD Green Talks: LIVE April 6, 2017 at 1.00 PM CEST
Degraded Waters: Emerging policy solutions to tackle diffuse pollution
Thursday 6 April – 13:00 CEST
At least half the world’s population suffers from polluted water. And the situation is set to worsen. Water pollution is on the rise due to indirect ‘diffuse’ sources of pollution from both agricultural and urban environments.
What policies can we put in place to address the diffuse water pollution challenge and reverse the trend of increasing degraded waters?
Join Hannah Leckie and Xavier Leflaive of the OECD Environment Directorate on April 6, 2017 at 13:00 CEST to discuss emerging solutions in OECD countries, that can guide the design and implementation of policies to control diffuse water pollution.
The presentation will be based on the recently published OECD study on Water: Diffuse Pollution, Degraded Waters: Emerging Policy Solutions
Duration: 1 hour (30 minutes presentation, followed by 30 minutes for Questions&Answers)
