Science Talk: Are you ready for a debate on water challenges at the border? / ¿Listo para debatir sobre los desafíos del agua en la frontera?

Explore water challenges at the Mexico-US border, changing hurricane patterns, and insights from young professionals. A deep dive into unprecedented climatic impacts.

“Pray for rain” is a widely phrase used when drought hits. Today, as the hurricane season seems to be shifting and becoming less reliable, uncertainty rules our projections and therefore, our policy development. 

How to face the new conditions when unprecedented seems to be the new normality? We definitely need to keep praying. 

The Permanent Forum of Binational Waters invites you to its upcoming Science Talk titled: “New Hurricane Season: Impacts in the Border Region”. 

This event aims to provide a platform to discuss these urgent matters and is a unique opportunity to hear from young professionals working in the Mexico-US border region.

Featured speakers:

Dr. Amaia Ruiz De Alegría Arzaburu, senior researcher at the Autonomous University of Baja California (UABC).

MC. Grace Gómez Quiroga, renowned environmental researcher.

Santosh Subhash, assistant professor at the prestigious AgriLife Center of Texas A&M University.

This virtual panel will not only disseminate valuable scientific work related to water at the border but will also be a priceless opportunity for scientists who are at the onset of their careers.

This Science Talk will be moderated by two young scientists:

Gabriela Rendón Herrera, Graduate Student Researcher at the University of California, Davis, a prominent member of the PFBW.

M.C. Jesus Manuel Ochoa-Rivero, ESE Graduate Student, Department of Earth, Environmental and Resource Sciences, The University of Texas at El Paso.

Event details:

Date: Thursday, September 28, 2023

Time: 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. (Central Time, USA)

Platform: Zoom Meeting

The Permanent Forum of Binational Waters is committed to integrating collaborative efforts and amplifying their impact across the border.
