Submission deadline:

This conference is part of the project NET - SCARCE, which in turn is the follow up of the project SCARCE (Assessing and predicting effects on water quantity and quality in Iberian rivers caused by global change). The
SCARCE project was a 5-year project that finished in December 2014 and addressed the study of four Spanish River basins (Llobregat, Ebro, Júcar and Guadalquivir). This was a multipurpose task aimed to predict the relevance of global change impacts on water quality and availability in Mediterranean river basins of the Iberian Peninsula, as well as their impacts on the ecosystem services, human society and economy.

This NET - SCARCE conference will provide a multi-disciplinary forum to present and discuss the many issues affecting water resources today. The meeting encourages transdisciplinary communication on issues related to the toxicants and stressors in water and how they affect water use and exploitation by society under scarcity. The conference invites anyone working on water sustainability to share knowledge to face a changing world in water resources management.
