It is my great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 6th International Seminar on November 22nd-24th, 2019 in Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. The main theme of the seminar is: “Advancement of Water Resources Management in a Global Challenge”.

Sustainable development under global challenges such as rapid population and economic growth, and climate change with limiting natural resources for the future we want calls for integrated and sustainable water resources management. This requires inter-linkages between various sector and clear understanding of such water-food-energy nexus. Beside greater interaction between sectors, a rapid changes in rural and urban water demands, escalating water related disaster, prominent climate change impacts require improvement in technology, IT, and even automation in the field of water resources management. Solution is needed based on new management options and widely available technologies. The seminar will provide an opportunity to exchange thought, knowledge, experiences among scientists, practioners and professionals regional and world wide in the field of water resources.

It will be once again an excellent opportunity to explore and exchange and share the experience and technologies and ideas to promote the sustainable water resources development and management.

I here by extend cordial invitation to all prospective participants to attend the 6th HATHI International Seminar in Kupang, Indonesia.

Dr. Imam Santoso

World to date is facing global challenges, a few to mention among others, population growth, climate change, and sustainable development. World population, in the next 12 years, will increase for another 1 billion, creating escalated demand for food, water, energy and economic growth. In order to keep up with population and economic growth, food production should increase by 70 percents by 2050. On the contrary, the loss of crop land, conversion of water from rural to urban, depletion of aquifer are intermingle in achieving the target. At the same time, a variety of climate change impacts has to be taken into account. In facts, worth to mention that global water withdrawals actually have tripled over the last 30 years and will need 40 percents more by 2030. Hence, a more sustainable development should take place producing more with requiring less resources especially water.

The challenges are interdependent, an improvement in one aspect make it easier to solve others. A much broader collaborative and integrated water resources development and management in providing all social and economic development needs without leaving environmental requirement behind is a must. In addition, escalating water related disaster requires an active preparedness and as a consequence risk reduction methodologies have to be established. New technologies and much better approach in managing water demands and providing water supplies should also take place. An advancement of water resources management is inevitably to cope with the growing global challenges.
