3nd International Conference on Geographical Science for Resilient Communities, Ecosystems and Livelihoods under Global Environmental Change (GORILLA) 2024


Water resources and water systems in the Anthropocene

Water resources are critically essential for the resilience of physical and human systems. The Anthropocene signature on water resources and water systems is very visible in various geographies. How does the combination of demographic changes, urbanization and global environmental change alter the water resources dynamics? Where are the critical signatures of the Anthropocene visible on water resources? How best can water resources and dependent livelihood systems be secured? We welcome abstracts focussed on water resources in all dimensions and at all scales, including water pollution and quality, water demands, watershed management and associated issues, impacts of climate change, land use change and transformations on water quality, human impacts on water resources and systems, and water-energy-food fluxes.
