Symposium // "Water Supply Planning in a Non-Stationary World", The 4th UF Water Institute Symposium, Floriad/USA

Several inter-disziplinary approaches on how to secure water security in future times will be discussed on this conference. One of the panels focusses on the nexus approach.

This symposium will bring together individuals from a variety of institutional affiliations, disciplines and perspectives to explore the science, technology, practices and policies needed for a secure water future.

Where

J. Wayne Reitz Union

University of Florida Campus

Gainesville, Florida

Speakers

Plenary speakers for the Conference include:

-Dr. Jerad Bales, Chief Scientist for Hydrology, US Geological Survey, Reston VA

-Dr. Ben Strauss, Director of the Program on Sea Level Rise, Climate Central, New York NY

-Dr. Robert Lempert, Director, Center for Longer Range Global Policy and the Future Human Condition; and Senior Scientist Rand Corporation, Santa Monica CA

Presentations, posters sessions and panel discussions will focus on integrating new research, education, policy and technology developments in the following areas:

-Impacts of changing drivers on water resources

-Water quality protection and treatment

-Managing water for people and the environment

-Water security: the water-energy-food nexus

-Science, stakeholders and decision-making

Student poster authors are eligible to compete for "Best Poster" awards based on the quality of the abstract, poster and discussion. Three poster winners will receive prizes of $1000 each to be used as funding to support future participation at a national conference.

Solar-powered Irrigation Systems (SPIS)

E-learning Course // Solar Powered Irrigation Systems

The GIZ Powering Agriculture Team has supported University Ostfalia to develop an e-learning course on Solar Powered Irrigation Systems. The course will be entirely online and look at sustainable water management, solar pumping essentials, planning and implementation, and operation and maintenance. E-tutors will support the students throughout the course.

IAMG2019 // 20th Annual Conference of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences

The conference will cover the usual topics in geo-mathematics, geostatistics, and geomodeling but in particular will bring to fore geomodeling issues at the intersection of food, water, and energy. The challenge of meeting the increased demand for food, water, and energy and the resultant stress on our geo-sphere is broadly accepted as one of the major scientific challenges facing mankind. The feedback processes intrinsic to this tri-partite cycle are best-studied using sophisticated...

Stockholm World Water Week (SWWW) 2019

Stockholm World Water Week 2019

In 2019, World Water Week will explore an inclusive approach. This week’s theme: “Water and society – including all” is recognizing that not everybody is impacted in the same way by too little, too much or too dirty water. Less obvious than last year, the Nexus approach will remain at the heart of the water debate, especially through the seminar topic "Addressing migration through regional integration and water security for all", that explicitly connects water, energy and food security as the...
