Practical Research at the Intersection of Ecology and Hydrology for Sustainable Water Management

Session ID#: 22375

Session Description:
Global climate change, population growth, and food production are all placing incredible stress on water resources that both people and nature depend upon. In response, sustainable water management policies are spreading worldwide to preserve our economy, society, and environment.  Environmental considerations are increasingly being incorporated into sustainable water management policies and creating new opportunities for nature to receive the water it needs.  However, implementing these policies successfully remains a challenge. Competing social and economic interests, a lack of biological/ecological expertise in water agencies, financial and technical constraints to characterize ecosystems, and a lack of measurable targets and thresholds all hinder sustainable water management.  To address these challenges, this session will feature practical research methodologies and findings that can strengthen the interface between ecology and hydrology for successful sustainable water management.
