About the SYMPOSIUM
Ensuring clean water supply and management of freshwater resources is one of the curial sustainable development goals (SDGs), particularly important for developing nations like India, where freshwater availability is challenged by overexploitation and environmental degradation of natural water resources. The gap between water availability and demands has increased in India with population growth, lifestyle changes, and economic activities. The degradation of water quality in natural rivers due to untreated wastes and return flow from agricultural areas has also been a significant concern. Traditionally, engineering solutions have been adopted to ensure adequate water supply.
In recent decades, Ecohydrology, a branch of hydrology that deals with ecosystem-water-climate connections, has emerged as a practical approach for finding nature-based solutions to these problems. The proposed symposium intends to bring Ecohydrology experts from different countries on a single platform to discuss the recent developments and issues in Ecohydrology research. Key issues and future research paths will be discussed through keynote lectures and panel discussions.
Why attend EHS-2022?
The leading researchers in the field from India and abroad will be delivering keynote talks about the ecohydrology concept, applications, case studies, challenges, and success stories. These presentations will help provide a solid background to participants in understanding the principles, importance, and future potential of Ecohydrology.
These sessions will facilitate brainstorming on the subject matter of the presented talks and help converge on desirable future directions to improve our understanding of ecohydrological systems and further actions.
