HYDROLOGICAL SCIENCES AND WATER SECURITY: PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE

16-17 June, UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, France, jointly organized by UNESCO IHP and IAHS

NEW SUBMISSION DEADLINE Abstracts of Poster contributions must be submitted by 4 May 2014 (template available here). Abstracts should be no more than two pages long, including figures and tables. Abstracts of selected posters will be inserted in the final IAHS Red Book e-book, which will be ISI indexed. 

Submit all abstracts to b.lwanga@unesco.org (Ms Barbara Lwanga Kavuma, IHP Secretariat). 

This Colloquium is the continuation of a series of biennial international scientific meetings organized jointly by the International Hydrological Programme (IHP) of UNESCO and the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) in the most challenging fields of water resources research. 

The Colloquium will address the emergence and development of water security concepts over the past decades, the state of present day ideas and opinions, and will look to likely developments in the future. Of particular importance will be inclusion of the new IAHS decade of research “Panta Rhei – Change in Hydrology and Society” and its relevance to Water Security.

The Colloquium will combine invited papers with a panel discussion and a poster session.
