Discussion on drinking water management

Wednesday 28 October 2009 evening

Prior to the WWW-YES-2009-Brazil workshop, all participants were asked to conduct a survey on the drinking water resources, production and distribution within a city of his/her choice. Using an on-line survey form, a table of the water survey results was built.

3 voluntary workshop participants prepared an English summary of the surveyed towns and presented it orally together with the necessary illustrations. Workshop participants were asked specific questions on the town which they have studied for this survey.

Presentation file of the results of this water survey:
- Light file (6 slides / page: 1 Mb)

In the evening of Wednesday 28 October, all WWW-YES-2009-Brazil participants took part to a public discussion session within the School of Engineering of the Federal University of Minas Gerais at Belo Horizonte on the topic of "Drinking water management : results of an international survey conducted by young environmental scientists". Translation to/from English was offered to the workshop participants, so that they could understand the questions raised in Portuguese and were able to reply in English.
