Hamideh Nouri (GlobeDrought) and Markus Berger (WELLE) of the GRoW cross-cutting group “water footprint” will lead a session on water footprint and water productivity at the General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) taking place virtually from April 19 to 30, 2020. Researchers are highly encouraged to contribute suitable abstracts.
The virtual EGU General Assembly 2021 brings together geoscientists from all over the world into one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space science. The assembly will take place entirely online due to the continuing risks posed by the coronavirus pandemic. The session on advancing in water footprint and water productivity, lead by Hamideh Nouri and Markus Berger of the GRoW joint research projects GlobeDrought and WELLE, will focus on the application of the water footprint and water productivity in different sectors and in different scales from local to national to global.
Researchers and decision-makers are highly encouraged to contribute abstracts on the progress in the assessment of water footprint and water productivity, case studies in different geographic settings with a variety of products, businesses and sectors, as well as abstracts on the application of water footprint to study scarcity, sustainability, security and equity of limited water resources.
