Conference // Water in the Anthropocene

New Challenges for Science and Governance. Indicators, Thresholds and Uncertainties of the Global Water System, Bonn

The focus of the conference is to address the global dimensions of water system changes due to anthropogenic as well as natural influences. The conference is organized by the Global Water System Project and its International Project Office based in Bonn, Germany.

It will help to build links between science and policy and practice in the area of water resources management and governance, related institutional and technological innovations and identify in which ways research can assist policy and practice in the field of sustainable freshwater management.
