Type: Conference / Symposium

7th UNESCO Global FRIEND-Water conference: "Hydrology in a Changing World : Environmental and Human Dimensions"

Montpellier, France - 07-10 October 2014

FRIEND-Water (Flow Regime from International Experimental and Network Data) is an international collaborative network of experts, which started 25 years ago, and that aims to generate new understanding about regional hydrology and multi-scale water cycle processes. As a cross-cutting theme of UNESCO’s, International Hydrology Program (IHP), FRIEND-Water contributes to research on: regional water resources, droughts, global change and the water cycle, and water education and capacity building.

The FRIEND-Water2014 Conference aims at sharing knowledge about change in hydrological processes (e.g. regimes, hydro-extremes), their impacts (e.g. ecological flows, erosion-sedimentation), and how this knowledge can be streamlined to let water management and policy to adapt to it.
