The 7th International Conference on Water Resources and Environment Research (ICWRER2016),
The International Conference on Water Resources and Environment Research (ICWRER) is a series of conferences dealing with hydrology and water resources. ICWRER-2016 is the 7th one of the series, and back to Kyoto since 1996 (1st one). One of the objectives of ICWRER conferences is to bring together physical, biological, chemical, statistical and technical expertise in order to better understand natural systems related to water resources from all around the world.
The main theme of ICWRER-2016 Symposium is ‘Water Security in Geo, Eco and Socio-Systems’. Water security is defined as the capacity of a population to safeguard sustainable access to adequate quantities of acceptable quality water for sustaining livelihoods, human well-being, and socio-economic development, for ensuring protection against water-borne pollution and water-related disasters, and for preserving ecosystems in a climate of peace and political stability. (UN-Water, 2013)
The topics of ICWRER conferences are wide encompassing climate change, hydrometeorological extremes, GIS and remote sensing, surface water and ground water interaction, real-time hydrometeorological forecasting, water-related disasters, integrated sediment and ecosystem management, water and environment management, eco-hydraulics and eco-hydrology, risk analysis and management, Legislation systems for water management, water diplomacy, social and economic aspects in water resources, and sustainable water resources management.
This conference is organized aiming to enhance the understanding of the natural and social phenomena associated with water resources issues through the discussion about whole water resources management system as integrated elements of geosystems, social systems and ecosystems.
