H098:
Pursuing Water Security in Socio-Hydrological Systems





Session ID#: 28998

Session Description:
W

Water insecurity is multi-faceted, arising from the challenge of balancing human and environmental water needs together with complex social and political frameworks. Pursuing water security requires understanding of the dynamic feedbacks between humans and water systems at scales from local to planetary, over days to millennia. This session invites studies presenting approaches, concepts, models and datasets that help understand the nature and causes of water (in)security. Submissions are encouraged on all aspects of water security: water scarcity (competition, conflict, collaboration), water pollution and health, flooding (vulnerability, dynamic flood risk), water access (quality, quantity, reliability, equity) as well drivers (infrastructure, economic policy, trade, governance), in addition to water, energy, and food resource availability and distribution. Research on adaptation strategies or solutions to water insecurity, including lessons learned from past or contemporary societies are also invited. Papers will be considered for a special issue of Water Security, a new Elsevier journal.
