Webinar on Sustainable Water Management in a Changing World: the role of society
19th January 2022, 2pm to 4pm (GMT)
The world is changing, and not just because of the climate. Current changes occur much faster than they did in the past. Furthermore, the fragmentation of knowledge has made technology very distant from public perception. However, there is evidence that public understanding of the choices made entails their active participation and, ultimately, greater success in the management policies adopted. The webinar presentations showcase success stories in this area.
The webinar will consist of four 20-minute presentations selected among the best papers presented at our 2021 conferences and also include a 30-minute Q&A section at the end for attendees’ questions to be put to the presenters.
The programme will include the following presentations:
- “The Virtual Water Flow of Crops in Semiarid Ceará, Brazil: the Impacts on the State’s Water Resources Management”
João Dehon de Araujo Pontes Filho, Universidade Federal do Ceará, Brazil
- “Towards an Absorption Strategy for the Management of Flood Risk: Study of the Strategy of Resistance and the Artificialization of Soils in the Franco–Belgian Cross-border Territory”
Emeline Coszach, University of Mons, Belgium
- “Deconstructing Power Dynamics and Prevailing Discourses in Hydropolitics: the Case of the Sixaola River Basin”
Fatine Ezbakhe, University of Geneva, Switzerland
- “Probabilistic estimation of runoff from green roofs”
