On March 22nd, Pacific Institute Research Associate Giuliana Chaves Moreira will participate in a panel at the “A Agua que Falta” (The Water that is Missing) documentary film premier event in Sumaré, São Paulo, Brazil. At this event, participants will have the opportunity to watch the premiere of the documentary and participate in a forum exploring water consumption issues around the world and potential solutions.
According to the UN, by 2030 almost half of the world’s population will face water supply problems. This startling fact motivated the film “A Agua que Falta,” which explores the motivating factors behind the neglect of water resources around the globe.
The forum debate will take place after the film premier, and will feature representatives of public management and the private sector who will share their varying perspectives on water issues. The debate will be mediated by the journalist Matthew Shirts of National Geographic. Samuel Barreto of The Nature Conservancy, Alexandre Gobbi of Netafim Amanco Brazil, and Richard Lee of Ambev will join Giuliana Chaves Moreira of the Pacific Institute as panelists.
The documentary project is supported by the United Nation Global Compact Network Brazil and has the participation of Carlo Pereira, Executive Director of UN Global Compact Network Brazil and other water experts, including Richard Lee of Ambev; Benedito Braga, President of the World Water Council; and Hamilton Amadeo of AEGEA Saneamento.
The event will take place from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM BRT at Unibes Cultural, Rua Oscar Freire, 2500 – Sumaré, São Paulo – SP, Brazil. Admission to the event is free of charge.
