Conference on Managing the Globalization of Sanitation Water Services at CUHK (23-24/03)
The faculty of Law of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) are delighted to welcome all the delegates and their guests to Hong Kong for the International Conference that will take place on March 23-24, 2015. This is an important scientific event devoted to the globalization of sanitation and water services and it will give participants a platform to exchange ideas, discover novel legal issues, reacquaint with colleagues, meet new friends, and broaden their knowledge.
The world of water services changed significantly in the late 1990s due to an extraordinary boom in global population growth. The sustained population increase sparked a need for water services expansion. Opportunities for investment in water services and sanitation infrastructure attracted tremendous support from a myriad of international financial institutions. These institutions unlocked a host of new business opportunities for the water services and sanitation industry to address traditional problems ranging from fresh water scarcity to inadequate investment in sanitation infrastructure to the inability of many public authorities to meet coverage needs.
