I believe that any effort towards hydrological science as physical/basic science has to contribute towards solving the real water resource problem that the millions of people faces everyday globally. This year Water Week in Stockholm as focused on the global water crisis and issues regarding water availability and uses. The theme was "Water for Sustainable Growth". Anything that relates water and development, or even life, is the theme of the conference. There are two reasons to write this post:
- The conference has plenty of interesting presentations online for various topics related to water and development in general. One can browse through the themes and enjoy the topic of interest. It can be found at SIWI media hub.
- REACH has contributed to the conference. Dr Katrina Charles and Dr Rob Hopes of REACH program presented to the conference and you can find their slides here and here, respectively.
