Call for abstracts (closed)

Abstract submission deadline: 9 January 2017

The River Basin Adaptation Conference aims to share experiences and identify best-practices on science-society interactions for river basin management and climate change adaptation. We invite abstract submissions for short (5-10 minutes), targeted oral presentations during the River Basin Adaptation conference. All abstract submissions should link to one of the conference themes. Abstract can be submitted to any of the following sessions:

  • Best Practices for designing adaptive management strategies
  • Policy Considerations for participatory river basin management

We welcome abstracts from policy makers, representatives of public administrations, environmental NGOs, scientists and other professionals working in the field of river basin management and climate change adaptation. We encourage abstracts to show how their experience can be useful to others, e.g. through identifying lessons learned, providing recommendations on best practice and considering whether the approach could be transferred to other regions or different contexts.
