About the Congress
Based on the decision of the General Assembly of the European Water Resources Association (EWRA) held in Porto (26 June 2013), which was reaffirmed during the General Assembly of EWRA in Istanbul (10 June 2015), the 10th World Congress on Water Resources and Environment will be held in Athens, 5-9 July 2017.
The Congress is organised by the National Technical University of Athens and the American Society of Civil Engineers.
The aim of the Congress is to promote environmentally sustainable water resources management and assist in improving the capacity of countries to mitigate and adapt to climate change and natural hazards. The Congress intends to become a benchmark event, by gathering a large number of scientists and engineers from various countries and cultures around the world, who will interact and explore ways to face the old and new global and regional challenges on water resources and ecosystems, for the benefit of the present and future generations.
A large number of cutting edge topics addressing the most critical aspects of Water Resources Management and Environment with world dimensions will be presented and discussed in the Congress. Key issue behind these topics is the change of variables and processes in time and space, which is delineated by the saying of the ancient philosopher Heraclitus “Panta rhei” (everything flows).
