The 6th World Water Forum, UNESCO and the French Water Academy are pleased to invite you to participate in the international seminar:

Raising awareness and enhancing adaptive capacity of water resources planning and management to climate change impacts

November 14 - 15, 2011

7 place de Fontenoy
75007 PARIS
Upon invitation only

As part of the thematic Priority for Action "Respond to climate and global changes in an urbanizing world" of the 6th World Water Forum (WWF-6), this international seminar aims at identifying solutions to be held to Marseilles, in March 2012.

This event will bring together scientists and water basin managers from all over the world to discuss the ways for decision-makers to better deal with uncertainties related to climate change impacts on water resources in water planning and management.

Participants will work on the definition of applicable tools, either to reduce the field of uncertainties or to integrate them in short and long term predictions for surface and groundwater systems. Some concrete case studies will help highlight the needs of river basin managers in the field of adaptation to climate change.

The main outputs of this innovative seminar will be to draw up clear propositions of contribution to WWF-6 and to make a few recommendations to be held to the major international events on climate (COP17, Rio +20…).

    We shall precise that because the limited number of participants, admission is limited to 1 or 2 people by organization.
