Workshop Water Quality: a new challenge for global scale modelling

Date: 18 September 2017 - 21 September 2017
Location: Wageningen

The objective of the workshop is to set an agenda for future modelling efforts that integrate our knowledge on global water quality modelling for various pollutants, in search for sustainable pathways for the long-term future. In this workshop we will discuss:

  1. the relevance of global water quality modelling for water security studies and sustainable development goals,
  2. the current state-of-the-art (objectives, scales, etc) of the available global water quality models,
  3. common denominators, such as input and validation data, drivers (agriculture, sanitation), processes, hydrology,
  4. joint development of ‘clean water scenarios’ to achieve sustainable water futures, and
  5. knowledge exchange and lessons learnt.

The programme has been set up around key-note presentations by leading researchers in the field and provides ample time for discussion. To participate, send your motivation to the organisers by the 24th of July. If you want to contribute a paper to a special issue that we hope to publish in the journal Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability, also send an email by that date.
