Пятая Конференция по водной безопасности и изменению климата (WSSC)

On behalf of the organizing committee of the Fifth Water Security and Climate Change (WSSC) Conference, we are pleased to invite you to submit session proposals and abstracts. The conference will take place in Hanoi, Vietnam on 01-03 March 2021. The WSCC strives to offer a platform for international exchange, to uncover interdisciplinary linkages and to release synergies between scientific evidence and both societal and political decision strategies. We seek to contribute to a significant social change, following the idea of the Green Deal – as currently discussed in Europe. For example, abstracts that deal with transformation strategies in the sense of the ecological reconstruction of the economy are welcome. We kindly invite contributions of creative and practical approaches with relevance for water security and strategies to cope with climate change considering technical ecologic, economic, and societal dimensions.

Session proposals and abstracts can be submitted on a wide range of topics under the following major themes.

  1. Water and Land for Agriculture and Food
  2. Water Security and Climate Change Adaptation
  3. Urban Water Management
  4. Water Security Hazards and Risks
  5. Water Knowledge and the Data Revolution
  6. International Water Management
  7. Connecting the Dots: Nexus Themes & Transformation Strategies

Abstracts can be submitted on the WSCC website ( https://watersecurity.info/) between 25 June and 30 September 2020! Please note that the session proposals are accepted until 15 July 2020. A brief information pack is also attached to this email. Travel grants can be possible for a limited number of presenters.

We hope to see you in Hanoi, however, given the current situation of Covid-19, it is possible that the entire conference will take place in a virtual format. We are closely monitoring the situation.
