IWRA host online conference on groundwater and climate change

On the 29-30 October 2020 the International Water Resources association (IWRA) will host an online conference on “Addressing Groundwater Resilience under Climate Change”.

Niger Families Face Drought

Climate change puts major pressure on the world’s freshwater resources. Higher temperatures and more extreme, less predictable, weather conditions are projected to affect availability and distribution of rainfall, snowmelt, river flows and groundwater, and further deteriorate water quality. But, the effects of climate change on groundwater are still poorly understood.

The conference will address these challenges and priorities in order to manage resiliently groundwater resources under climate change. The conference’s main goal is to, ultimately, promote the sharing and exchange of state-of-the-art scientific and policy knowledge on the links between an increased resilience of groundwater resources and climate change for the sustainable governance, use and management of these resources in all regions of the world.
