Entering into force in 2016, the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development considers 3 aspects on sustainable development: society, economy and environment. Water security under changing environment is not only a hot issue attracting international attention, but also a major challenge to safeguard the implementation of the national water security strategy and achieve sustainable development in China. With climate change, human society development and technology progress, the situation of water resources security has been changing dramatically in China. Focusing on the theme of Water Security and Sustainable Development, the 1st International Top-Level Forum on Engineering Science and Technology Development Strategy – Water Safety and Sustainable Development was successfully held on May 29-30, 2015 in Nanjing. 13 keynote speeches and 25 talks at the round table meeting were conducted on 5 topics, i.e. utilization and optimal allocation of water resources, flood and drought disasters, water ecology and environment, hydraulic engineering construction and safety management, coastal and offshore engineering.

In order to further discuss and explore solutions on water security under changing environment in China, NHRI and Hohai University is going to hold the 2nd Forum on October 18-20, 2017 in Nanjing. The theme of the 2nd Forum is Water Security and Sustainable Development under Changing Environment. Worldwide participants are welcome to the Forum. Intensive discussions will be expected in view of the strategic demands of water security in China and international frontier of water science, which will provide technical support for water security to safeguard the sustainable economic and social development and ecological progress in China.

Theme

Water Security and Sustainable Development under Changing Environment

Topics

  • Impacts of climate change on extreme hydrologic events
  • Impacts of changing environment on water circulation and regional water resources
  • Impacts of climate change on water eco-environment
  • Urban development and urban flood control
  • Adaptation strategy of environmental change and sustainable development
  • Hydrological experiments under changing environment
  • Water-energy-food nexus under changing environment

Researchers and scholars from the world are invited to gather at this international academic event. A collection of 1-page abstracts will be printed before the Forum. Selected excellent papers will be recommended to EI or SCI journals, such as Journal of Hydraulic Engineering, Journal of Hydrologic Engineering, Journal of the American Water Resources Association, Water Science and Engineering and Advances in Water Science, etc. Best Paper Awards will be granted to students and young researchers under the age of 35 years old.
