Water Security and Climate Adaptation Conference 2023

Adaptation and Mitigation through Sustainable Development

The Global Water and Climate Adaptation Centre, Aachen – Bangkok – Chennai – Dresden (ABCD Centre) are pleased to hereby take this opportunity to invite you to take part in the Water Security and Climate Adaptation Centre Conference (WSCA 2023) to be held during 4th – 7th October 2023 at IIT Madras, Chennai, India.

The global water system is in crisis. Despite safe water and sanitation being a human right, 3.6 billion of people lack access to these essentials for life, according to the World Meteorological Organisation. This is directly linked to the process of global warming. The relevance of the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: “Ensuring the sustainable management of water and sanitation for all” is outstanding and therefore, the UN 2023 Water Conference marks the halfway point through the International Decade for Action “Water for Sustainable Development “. For this reason, we, the DAAD Global Water and Climate Adaptation Centre (ABCD-Centre) have planned to organize an International Conference on Water Security and Climate Adaptation (WSCA 2023), funded by DAAD. The conference will bring together partners from science, industry, private sector, and policy, to focus on sustainable development and implementation of climate adaptation measures. We are planning the conference to be a physical meet, which is an essential factor for fruitful interaction and collaboration.

We take this opportunity to inform you that the extended abstract submission is now open for the Water Security and Climate Adaptation Conference (WSCA 2023).

The deadline for online abstract submission is 15th June 2023.

The conference details about the online extended abstract submission and the announcement are available on the conference website Please do not hesitate to contact the conference secretariat ( for any further clarifications.

We look forward to your active participation.
