BE PARTNER, SUPPORT or EXHIBIT at Climate Change And 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 call for papers 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.

Four themes and four study topics have been defined to deal with the issue of the impacts of climate change on water. Proposals for communications should cover at least one theme and one topic. This structure is aimed at establishing interdisciplinary dialogue between the various people involved in these issues: elected representatives, managers, stakeholders and scientists from public research (institutes and universities), governmental bodies, local authorities, technical organisations, associations and industrial companies.
