At the event, IIASA researcher Peter Burek answered questions on global water issues as well as those specific to Austria. He also talked about the water-energy-food nexus with a special reference to climate change. Apart from that, Burek briefly introduced the water program at IIASA and its flagship initiative “Water Futures and Solutions”.

During the event the newly installed photovoltaics panels were put in operation at the purification plant in Laxenburg at the Hahnenwiesenweg. They will provide part of the operating electricity of the water treatment facility.
