Ce livre décrit les processus hydrologiques et leurs dynamiques passées et actuelles au gré de l’évolution des agrosystèmes, de leur emprise spatiale, de leur capacité d’adaptation au changement global, et aux changements climatiques. Il se fonde sur l’indicateur que représente la capacité de rétention en eau des sols, qui conditionne la bonne alimentation en eau et en nutriments des systèmes racinaires, tant des cultures que de la végétation naturelle. C’est aussi cette rétention en eau qui permet de limiter le ruissellement et les inondations en aval.

Developed by Princeton University’s Terrestrial Hydrology Group in collaboration with UNESCO IHP, G-WADI secretariats and members, regional centers, the African Flood and Drought Monitor (AFDM) monitors and forecasts meteorological, agricultural and hydrological drought at various temporal and spatial scales. It also has a multi-decadal, historical reconstruction of the terrestrial water cycle against which current conditions can be compared.

Del 12 al 15 de marzo de 2018 se dictará en la Facultad de Ingeniería y Ciencias Hídricas (Universidad Nacional del Litoral), Santa Fe (Argentina) el curso:

“Hydro-BID: Herramienta para el análisis de los efectos del cambio climático y la planificación de los recursos hídricos en América Latina y el Caribe”

THE SECRETARY-GENERAL
REMARKS AT ONE PLANET SUMMIT Paris, 12 December 2017
[as delivered]
President Macron, Excellencies, World Bank President Jim Kim, Ladies and gentlemen,
We are not yet winning the war on climate change — the defining challenge of our times.
The Paris Agreement lays the basis for ambitious action.
But we know that current commitments will not get us there.
Every day, in every region, the front pages are dominated by weather-related disasters – storms, floods, droughts, fires.

People, planet, prosperity and peace are four priorities shared by Africa and Europe, and areas where opportunities for beneficial cooperation abound. Over the past three decades, the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) has worked with many organisations and institutions across Africa. This report and its accompanying interactive online service, 'Africa StoryMaps', present the key findings from this collaboration, and set out options the decision-making, research, and education communities may consider.

The specific objectives of this component of the BASAL project (implemented by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) together with the Cuban Institutions partners), in consistency with the above overall objectives of the project, are:

UNESCO-International Hydrological Programme organizes the Knowledge Forum on Water Security and Climate Change.

The aim of the Knowledge Forum will be also to facilitate knowledge exchange and to develop new projects.
Featured activities of the Knowledge Forum on Water Security and
Climate Change:

•Invited keynotes

•Enhancing partnerships on water security and climate change

 

Europe’s leading forum on development since 2006, Organized by the European Commission, the European Development Days (EDD) bring the development community together each year to share ideas and experiences in ways that inspire new partnerships and innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.

BRUSSELS, Belgium - 3rd May 2017 - Wetlands International launched a report at the Red Cross EU Office in Brussels, aimed at highlighting to policymakers the relationship between the health of wetland ecosystems and involuntary human migration in the Sahel region of Africa. Entitled ‘Water Shocks: Wetlands and Human Migration in the Sahel’ the publication examines how poor water management leads to degradation of ecosystems, and is an overlooked cause of human migration, including to Europe.
