ECRA, European Climate Research Alliance

Chaired by Peter Braesicke, ECRA participated in the CCW 2018 International Conference by collaborating with the MiDi network for a special ECRA session on "Societal challenges related to climate change impacts on the hydrological cycle - Risk analysis, vulnerability and adaptation".

The European Climate Research Alliance (ECRA) aims to strengthen, expand and optimise EU climate research capabilities through the sharing of world-class national facilities in Europe and the collaborative realisation of pan-EU programmes (more information)

Global warming strongly affects the functioning of natural, anthropogenic and urban systems.

The thematic research network of laboratories MiDi (Environments and Diversity [Milieux & Diversité]) and the French cluster DREAM (Water and Environments [Eau & Milieux]) organized the international conference : "Climate Change & Water 2018" : diversity of local responses to the impacts of climate change on water (CCW 2018).

Opened by Benoît Faucheux, Vice-President Delegate for energy transition and environment of the Center-Val de Loire Region and by Philippe Vendrix, President of the University of Tours, the objective of this conference, where more than 200 water stakeholders from over 46 countries exchanged, was to show 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 event was a great opportunity for all stakeholders to highlight innovative solutions and / or methods, research and development work, best practices and feedback: plenary sessions and networking throughout the duration of the event.

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.
