The international symposium Climate change & Water will be held on May 31 and June 1 and 2, 2022, in Tours in the Centre-Val de Loire region of France. This international conference is open to the academic world and to socio-economic partners concerned by the variability of the water cycle and adaptation to extreme events.
The purpose of this call for papers is to orient the reflection and exchanges not only on the observation of the acceleration of the physical, chemical, biological and ecological effects of climate change but also on the proposed adaptation strategies at the local level. Adaptations in response to observed or anticipated changes may be related to specific disciplinary fields (ecology, biology, technological innovation, hydrology and social sciences) or may be transversal (environmental management, resource management). Feedback on concrete case studies and specific success stories will be particularly welcome during this conference. In addition, as water, energy, food and ecosystems form an interconnected nexus that plays a central role in the provision of resources and services necessary to sustain human activity, studies proposing how this nexus is affected by climate change, precipitation and land cover as well as by economic development, agriculture and urban growth will be highly valued.
