Less then a month to our meeting in Dubrovnik! Organization is in a final
stage. Due to several cancellations and changes (some where pretty late) we
have decided to compress the programme and will finish all the lectures on
Wednesday, 27th. The keynote presentations of every block will have 30 min.
+ discussion time and all presentations 20 min. + discussion time. There are
several posters so we will not have a special session. The posters will be
positioned in a hall where we will have coffee breaks. The updated programme is already published on our page.
Kind regards and looking forward to welcoming you in Croatia!
On behalf of the Organizing Committee,
The Commission for Water Sustainability of the International Geographical Union (IGU) aims to interpret “sustainability” in the widest possible sense, including the sustainability of the environment in the face of water development work as well as the sustainability of water resources. It aims to foster links between the human and physical aspects of water management, with specific concern for the sustainability of water resources and for the impacts of water management on the environment. In the past 25 years the Commission held regular international conferences in different parts of the world in order to encourage scientific research and development of sustainable water resources practices as well as to bring together researchers from hosting and surrounding countries.
