II International Congress on Water
Given the current context of climate change, it is clear that the impact of extreme weather phenomena such as floods and droughts will only worsen over the decades to come, becoming one of the main concerns for developed countries. As such, warning and contingency protocols need to be set up in order to face these new challenges.
The objective of this congress is to bring together scientists from around the world to discuss the latest advances in flood and drought analysis, prevention and mitigation. Similarly, the congress also aims to bring together different stakeholders responsible for water management at the local, regional and national levels such as Water Authorities, together with highly water-dependent productive sectors such as farmers, energy companies, water providers, etc., in order to promote a valuable exchange of information between the scientists, stakeholders and decision-makers involved.
