Water Security Studies
Water security can be defined as the ability to access sufficient quantities of clean water to maintain adequate standards of food and goods production, proper sanitation, and sustainable health care.
Many factors contribute to water security, ranging from biophysical to infrastructural, institutional, political, social and financial – many of which lie outside the water realm.
The SDG ( Sustainable Development Goal) process must incorporate a goal and related targets for achieving water security, as this will address multiple priority development areas under consideration: conflict and fragility; environmental sustainability; growth and employment; health, hunger, food and nutrition; inequities; energy; and of course, water.
The team members of Geovale Services are actively involved in several hydrological and hydrogeological projects addressing the issue of water security and corresponding risk assessment.
