The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water


LIVESTREAM of 2nd International Conference on Water and Climate

October 3-4 will be key dates in the lead up to COP23 in Bonn. The 2nd International Conference on Water and Climate: Fostering dialogue on the road of COP23 will take place on those dates in Marseille, France. The World Water Council, with the support of the CoP22 Presidency as represented by the Delegate Ministry for Water of the Kingdom of Morocco, and with the collaboration of other international partners such as the #ClimateIsWater Initiative, will be hosting the event.

Call for Abstracts: AGU Session on Integrated Observations and Modeling of Water Cycle (Variability) Extremes (WCEs)

Extremes in the water cycle are becoming more frequent and intense as the climate changes. Many of the impacts of these climate-related extremes are mediated through the water cycle. They are particularly important because of their large impacts on socio-economic structures/activities and on natural ecosystems. WCEs are at the center of changes in the water-food-energy-health-ecosystem nexus. They provide a cross-cutting focus for water cycle research and applications. Adequately characterizing WCEs (in space/time) is a challenge to both space-based and in-situ observing systems, and data assimilation/modeling systems. These topics will be discussed in a session at the AGU Conference taking place 14-18 December 2015 in San Francisco, CA, USA. Read More...
