World leader in water management challenges widespread belief

Waterloo – One of the world's leading authorities on water management will challenge the widespread belief that there is an impending global water crisis when he gives a free public lecture at the University of Waterloo next week.

The Water Institute at the University of Waterloo is honoured to present Professor Asit K. Biswas of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy as its 2013 Distinguished Lecturer. Professor Biswas will argue that the world has enough water to support our food and energy requirements if we management it properly. He will identify poor water management practices and describe some remarkable advances in unexpected places.

Professor Biswas has served as senior advisor to 20 governments, NATO and other international organizations. He is the founder of the Third World Centre for Water Management, and winner of the prestigious Stockholm Water Prize.

Professor Biswas is available for media interviews from Waterloo April 30 through May 3.

The University of Waterloo has been actively involved in water-related research throughout its history. In 2009, it established the Water Institute, which has emerged as an internationally recognized research institution specializing in many water-related disciplines.
