|Tuesday 10 May, 13.30 – 15.15, New York Room|
Water management in arid and semi-arid areas is usually characterized by conflicting uses. The impact of droughts is expected to be exacerbated by climate and global change. In this cabaret session we will discuss the challenges of drought management in different parts of the world taking into account the different water needs from an economic, environmental and social perspective. We aim at providing inputs coming from science-practitioner experiences combining them with science based services and inviting the public to actively participate with their knowledge. We will take advantage of transdisciplinary knowledge creation on droughts and come up with a policy brief and a scientific publication.
