The 7th International Conference on Water Resources and Environment Research (ICWRER2016)

Concept description:

The International Conference on Water Resources and Environment Research (ICWRER) was initiated in Kyoto in 1996, with an aim to bring together leading scientists, engineers and experts working on hydrology, water resources and environment from around the world for deep discussions on hydrological systems and associated issues covering a wide range of scientific and practical topics. In 2016, after exactly twenty years following the foundation, it returned to Kyoto as its seventh conference (ICWRER2016). More than 200 participants joined the conference to share their latest achievements and experiences under the theme of “Water Security in Geo, Eco and Socio-Systems”. This special collection includes 10 articles that appeared in the ICWRER2016, which were successfully published as peer-reviewed papers in Hydrological Research Letters. The topics of the papers extend across climate change, water resources, sediment management and conflict analysis, reflecting the aim of this international conference. We are grateful for the financial support to some of the articles in this special collection from Japan Society of Hydrology and Water Resources.
