H129:
Urban Groundwater: Data, Tools and Adaptive Planning for Integrated Management





Session ID#: 24993

Session Description:
In the context of urbanisation, infrastructure development and water scarcity, a vital commonly neglected aspect of integrated management is the role of urban groundwater. For many global cities groundwater is a key element for ensuring an adequate water supply resilient to extreme events, and also a serious and costly hazard to multiple infrastructure sectors and human health. This session focuses on advances in monitoring, data collection, visualisation, modelling, impact assessment and adaptive planning for urban groundwater resilience. We welcome studies that address key challenges related to integrated management: a) groundwater flooding; b) characterisation of complex interactions between groundwater and urban infrastructure; c) urban water security and groundwater; and d) urban groundwater pollution. Contributions relating to data scarce regions and/or developing countries to quantify groundwater availability, its interaction with urban systems and coastal water, and novel methods using citizen science and participatory engagement are particularly encouraged.
