International Symposium: ECOHYDROLOGY for the Circular Economy and Nature-Based Solutions towards mitigation / adaptation to Climate Change
September 26 @ 8:00 am - September 28 @ 5:00 pm
Organized by the European Regional Centre for Ecohydrology of the Polish Academy of Sciences (ERCE)
The AIM OF THE SYMPOSIUM is to bring together top experts, leaders and young scientists from scientific institutions and international organizations and provide an open floor for the discussion and cross disciplinary cooperation in the integration of Ecohydrology and Nature-Based Solutions with a Circular Economy development towards mitigation/adaptation to Climate Change. Ecohydrology, as transdisciplinary science, has been postulating ecosystem processes as management tools for sustainability by defining multidimensional goals for catchment management – WBSRC (Water, Biodiversity, Ecosystem Services for Society, Resilience to climatic changes and Cultural heritage). Since Ecohydrology formulation under UNESCO’s International Hydrological Programme, the implementation of WBSRC strategy is creating synergy between Nature-Based Solutions and Circular Economy model with constant development and increasing efficiency.
The Symposium includes 4 parallel sessions, among them the AMBER SESSION: The role of dams in river ecosystems (pros & cons) – chaired by Carlos Garcia De Leaniz and related to this session accompanying SPECIAL EVENT – 4th symposium of Healthy Rivers and Sustainable Water Resource Management: Reservoir carbon cycling and GHG fluxes: from the perspective of Ecohydrology for Mitigation and Adaptation to Climate Change.
Selected papers will be published in a special symposium issue of Ecohydrology & Hydrobiology journal (ELSEVIER, www.journals.elsevier.com/ecohydrology-and-hydrobiology).
