Abstract
Between the 22 to the 25th September, the Marcelino Botin Foundation hosted the 4th Marcelino Botin Water Workshop. This is the last of a series of seminars which take place in Santander every two years. These Seminars, led by the Director of the FMB¿Water Observatory, Professor Ramon Llamas, focus on global water issues. Experts from all over the world met over three days to discuss these issues, on this occasion looking at re¿thinking water and food security.
