ForumAlpinum has issued a call for contributions to its 2018 edition exploring the topic 'Alpine Water - Common Good or Source of Conflicts?'
Changing environmental and climatic conditions and growing demand for water will likely lead to conflicts in water use and water management in the Alps. Examining this issue, ForumAlpinum 2018 will take place 4-6 June in Breitenwang, Austria, and will identify hot spots of water use and management in the Alps, analyze conflicts, assess their relevance in a regional, national or international context, and discuss possible solutions.
The ForumAlpinum 2018 organizing committee would like to encourage you to submit proposals for workshops, poster presentations, and other formats that present projects or actions on the current or future use and management of Alpine water. Contributions are sought from science, administration, and practice. Proposals must be submitted in English by 10 January 2018.
ForumAlpinum 2018 will be jointly organised with the 6th Water Conference of the Alpine Convention and EUSALP.
Further details concerning topics and the preliminary programme can be found on the ForumAlpinum website.
