International conference Climate Change & Water 2018

International conference Climate Change & Water 2018

Global warming strongly affects the functioning of natural, anthropogenic and urban systems. The thematic research network of laboratories MiDi (Environments and Diversity [Milieux & Diversité]) proposes this conference on the modifications occurring in the water cycle due to global changes in different environments. This conference is co-organized with the French cluster DREAM (Water and Environments [Eau & Milieux]).

The international conference on the impacts of climate change on water will be held on February 5, 6 and 7, 2018 at a Congress Center in Tours.

The aim of this conference is to stimulate exchanges and new developments that enrich the diversity of local responses to the impacts of climate change on water, including biological, technical and societal adaptations. The objective is to gain insight on how threats to water can be tackled by illustrating the different impacts of climate change on the water cycle from region to region, from the ecosystem to the biogeographic scale, and taking into account the functional, institutional and socio-political dimensions (administrative territories such as regions, cities etc.; water management agencies; associations, etc.).

This conference is open to both academics and non-academics (e.g., socio-economical partners) that are concerned by the variability in water cycle in the context of climate change.

Opening of the conference by Jean Jouzel
The Climate Change &WATER 2018 international conference on the diversity of local responses to the impacts of climate change on water will be open by a plenary of Jean Jouzel, research director emeritus in paleo-climatology at the Laboratory of the sciences of the climate and environment of the Pierre-Simon Laplace Institute (CEA / CNRS / UVSQ).
