The aim of the conference is to review the state-of-the-art research, advance understanding and foster dialogue with professionals and policy makers concerning global aspects of river basins and their management.
In particular, this conference will focus on understanding the connection between changes in a river basin and driving forces originating outside of the basin, e.g. the impact of climate change on river basin water availability, or the influence of international food trade on land use and resulting hydrologic changes within a basin, or the impact of international financial institutions on the development of water infrastructure within particular river basins.
The conference will bring together scientists, practitioners and young academics, promoting exchange and feedback between the various actors concerned with river basin research and management.
- The conference will involve plenary sessions, panel discussions, workshops and poster sessions.
- Please Note: Due to space limitation the number of participants cannot exceed 200.
