The international symposium Climate change & Water 202

Climate change is disrupting the water cycle. Impacts are observed in all environments and socio-ecosystems: forests, soils, lakes, cities, and so on. The MiDi (Environments & Diversity) network and its partners propose to focus on the different forms of impacts of climate change via its effect on water. Indeed, if the general trend of global warming is observed in all regions of the world, where are the findings and responses to climate extremes such as droughts, floods, heat waves and sudden and intense rainfall?

For this third edition of Climate Change Water, drought extreme will be highlighted. Also, as far as this crop is particularly important in the Loire-Valley, a focus on wine production is proposed. These choices do not exclude papers neither on other extremes nor on other environments.

We have identified eight case studies in the energy, food security, water and infrastructure sectors of the SADC region – to provide a range of examples where climate service delivery can be successfully implemented.
