AGWA and SIWI are part of an ongoing EU project called Nature Insurance Value: Assessment and Demonstration (NAIAD
). The project is coordinated by the Duero River Basin Authority and funded under the European Horizon 2020 Program. The goal of the project is to operationalize the insurance value of ecosystems to reduce the human and economic cost of risks associated with water (floods and droughts) by developing and testing - with key insurers and municipalities - the concepts, tools, applications and instruments (business models) necessary for its mainstreaming.
NAIAD will be presenting at the EGU General Assembly this April in Vienna, Austria. Representatives of the NAIAD project will give a presentation and answer questions as part of Session HS5.4 - "Nature Based Solutions for hydrological extremes and water resource management."

Following a successful turnout in previous years, organizers of EGU2017
are also this year organizing a session titled “Water Resources Management and Policy in a Changing World." Water plays a critical role in sustaining human health, food security, energy production and ecosystem services. Population growth, climate and land use change increasingly threaten water quality and quantity. Successful management of water resources requires an integrative understanding of coupled human and natural system components that can be used to generate practical, scientifically sound, economically-efficient and socially acceptable solutions that are sustainable. This session, which serves as the sister to the annual Water and Society session at the AGU meeting, provides a forum for discussing the advances in water resources systems analysis, planning and management to inform public policy, water resource allocation, conflict resolution, water governance, and sustainable development in a changing world.
Submissions for this session are welcome and can be submitted directly to http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2017/abstractsubmission/22982
. Abstracts are due Wednesday, 11 January. Read More...
