Description

Throughout the world problems of decreasing water quality and quantity are associated with
increased consumer numbers and individual demand, increases in the range and amount of uses, and the problem of actual and potential environmental, especially climatic, change. While technological and political solutions, or at least approaches to solutions, vary from society to society, the underlying problems are similar. This conference will assess the similarities and differences.
The Commission for Water Sustainability aims to interpret "sustainability" in the widest possible sense, including the sustainability of the environment in the face of water development work as well as the sustainability of water resources. It aims to foster links between the human and physical aspects of water management, with specific concern for the sustainability of water resources and for
the impacts of water management on the environment.
The Conference is calling for papers focusing on the following Sections:
Underground resources
Water and hydro-geological risks
Planning of water resources
Infrastructures for water resources management
Hydrologic emergencies
Water resources and environmental and climatic change
Water sustainability in the alpine environment
