Prof. J. Ganoulis, UNESCO Chair INWEB coordinator, presented a paper entitled “Water regime vulnerability due to climate change impacts on snow cover budget at mountainous basins of the Mediterranean” at the HydroPredict 2012 conference held in Vienna from 24th-27th September 2012.  

The conference brought together professionals, scientists and members of governmental institutions dealing with water resources management. Representatives of natural, social and engineering sciences met together to exchange experience and presented the current views on the adaptation and mitigation of adverse effects of global change on water resources systems.

The main objectives of the conference were to:

  • present tools and methods which assist in assessing and discriminating between human and climate change induced impacts on water resources systems;
  • discuss the predictive capability of simulation models used for water resources issues, including the model output uncertainty,
  • present tools and methods for adaptation to changing global conditions;
  • address water management policy to reduce vulnerability and to increase the resilience of water resources systems; and
  • analyze the role of water resources within the complex social-economic-climatic system.
