Summer School on Global Warming and Sustainable Water Management , TU Braunschweig. November 16 – 22, 2011

Overview

Twenty PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and senior research scientists and engineers from developing countries were invited to join the Summer School on Global Warming and Sustainable Water Management held November 16 – 22, 2011 at TU Braunschweig.

The summer school purposed to increase the understanding of the interactions between climate change and water management. The aim was to clarify causes and effects of climate change and to underline the benefits of a sustainable management of water resources on global warming and on water-, energy- and nutrient cycles. With respect to the different home countries of the participants and their specific questions and problems, strategies were also discussed how the water sector can contribute to cope with climate change on a local scale.

The program consisted of lectures and discussion sessions. Additionally, all participants had the chance to take part in the two day international symposium „Re-Water Braunschweig“ on water reuse and inspecting the techniques applied for a comprehensive water and nutrient recycling concept in the city of Braunschweig.

For further information on the event, please have a look at the detailed program.
