‘Water and Climate Information for Tomorrow’
The first years of this century have been marked by drought, increased competition over dwindling water resources, and concerns about the impact of future climate change. While these issues are likely to remain, new demands for water and climate information have arisen. Examples are flood and fire management, the agricultural development of northern Australia, the impact of mineral resources extraction, and compound extreme events such as droughts/heat waves.
This workshop examined the water and climate information needs for tomorrow and compare these to the current state and developments in information services, observation sources, scientific knowledge and model technology.
