Water in a Changing Climate – Threats and Opportunities

climate change

Föredrag, 350-årsjubileum

Learn more about flooding, climate change & water management through six brief science talks!

The division of Water Resources Engineering at LTH, Lund University, gives six brief popular science talks about water and its importance in society in a number of different areas. These talks will address both local and global issues and be held in English.

Popular science talks during the event:

Introduction and an overview of activities at The division of Water Resources Engineering, LTH, Lund University.

 Do we see more floodings and more droughts than before? What is due to climate change and what is due to climate variability?

Rising sea levels will create serious challenges with respect to increased coastal flooding and erosion. What can we do?

Social and economic aspects on the use of drinking water and sanitation in the framework of climate change.

A changing climate will mean more extreme rainfall. How can we protect cities from severe flooding? Can we do something in our own back-yard?

How can we adapt to climate change using wetlands and sustainable drainage systems?
