21 May 2013 - 24 May 2013
Kabat will talk about the global water system, its current state and future challenges, issues particularly relevant to IIASA's recently launched Water Futures and Solutions: World Water Scenarios initiative. In partnership with UNESCO, the World Water Council, the International Water Association, and the Korean Government, this new initiative aims to provide a scientific basis for responding to worldwide water challenges by testing possible optional solutions against a number of scenarios for socio-economic change, and bring together decision makers to discuss a common vision for the future.
The GWSP conference will provide a platform to present global and regional perspectives of worldwide experiences on the responses of water management to global change in order to address issues such as variability in supply, increasing demands for water, environmental flows, and land use change. It will help to build links between science and policy and practice in the area of water resources management and governance, related institutional and technological innovations and identify in which ways research can assist policy and practice in the field of sustainable freshwater management.
Participants from all continents and dealing with various water-related problems are expected to attend this conference.
