Water Resources Management

Major goal of water resource management (WRM) is water security. Water resource management contribute to harnessing the benefits of water by ensuring sufficient water of adequate quality for sanitation services, agriculture, energy production, recreational purposes, and healthy water dependent Ecosystems. WRM also comprises management of water related risks such as floods, drought, and contamination. In the context of climatic and non-climatic scenarios, it is need of the hour to strengthen our action plans through capacity building, adaptability, and resilience for effective management of water resources. Moving forward, combating the impacts of climate change, conservation and management of water resources is core for sustainability. Hence, the Water Resource Management Track has the following subtopics for knowledge and innovation sharing:

Rainwater Harvesting and Climatology:

With the ever-growing population and shrinking drinking water reserves, Rainwater Harvesting has become a very important subject in the water world. Rainwater Harvesting Systems is themed to discuss topics pertaining to minimizing climate vulnerability with an emphasis on: Alternatives for clean water source during drought and Adaptation action to the reduce the impacts of extreme weather events such as floods.

Accuracy of weather forecast and climate change impact to Water Management:

Since the changes will likely affect fundamental drivers of the hydrological cycle, climate change may have a large impact on water resources and water resources managers.
Observational evidence shows that many natural systems are being affected by regional climate changes, particularly temperature increases.
Assessing Climate Change impact on water demand is one of the challenging tasks. The topic is intended to shed light on evaluation of effects of weather variables on current and future climate change scenarios that are relevant to water management.

Surface Water and Hydrology:

The water on the Earth's surface occurs as streams, lakes, and wetlands, as well as bays and oceans. Transboundary water bodies and aquifers are common features of todays hydrological and political landscape. Therefore, changes in the surface water and hydrological cycles because of land use, development and climate change are the prime focus of water managers.
Research and policy discussions in this regard add value to knowledge exchange on basin management, water budgets and patterns of future water used is needed to understand implications due to the complex interactions of social, environmental, and political factors.

Soil and Water Management:

Healthy soil and water availability are vital for enhanced crop yields. Hence, conservation measures are imperative to reduce runoff and soil erosion to improve soil moisture thereby sustainable crop production. Therefore, soil management is a key component to the success of site-specific cropping systems management. The session highlights the holistic management of soil and water resources for protecting natural ecosystems. Development of improved technologies and judicial use of natural resources for sustainable Agri-systems are integrated in the program.
