Conference // Water Storage and Hydropower Development for Africa

The connection of energy and water is most obvious in electricity generation through hydropower. Plus dams have an important impact on the environemtn, on water availability upstream and downstream, and thus on food production and food security. The AFRICA 2019 conference will bring together industry professionals in Namibia, a country with a variety of dams, to discuss water and energy issues relevant to Africa.

Session at the AGU Fall Meeting 2018 // Frontiers in Hydrology: Paths Toward the Next Century in Water Research

Although humans have studied and managed water resources for millennia, hydrology has evolved immensely in the last century. The field continues to grow more integrated, while tackling complex issues across wide spatial and temporal scales. Big data, cross-disciplinary collaborations, novel data collection and analytical methods can help address the major questions of our time in the face of increasing uncertainties, such as: How do we manage the Food-Water-Energy nexus under climate change? Can...
