How do we envision a sustainable, equitable future, and how does water fit into it? This year’s MIT Water Summit will focus on the role of water in building resilient systems for the future as we face a changing climate and an ever-increasing population. With an emphasis on the water lens, it will examine the systemic problems exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic and explore approaches to creating more robust and sustainable technology, infrastructure, and policy to solve these issues.

Newsha Ajami, Director of Urban Water Policy at Water in the West and close Lane Center partner, will participate in a panel on the second day of the MIT Water Summit and give a presentation on Friday. Stanford affiliates can register for free using this link.
