13th International Riversymposium

The 13th International Riversymposium will be held from 11 - 14 October 2010.

The Riversymposium program will focus on moving water and will be a kaleidoscope of activities and fascinating topics from around the globe focusing around 6 key themes – 

RS themes

The unimpeded movement of water through wild rivers, environmental flows, estuaries and groundwater as well as moving water across borders, through dams, agriculture, cities and multiple times through industry will be examined. The latest in monitoring techniques and keeping communities engaged and determining the economic values of rivers will be discussed along with the changing states and strategies with impacts of climate change on rivers, discussions about  drought  and preventing freshwater extinctions as well as some exciting innovations in industry use of water. 

Our feature sessions and case studies will cut across the 6 key themes to bring examples from different continents, industry and research groups.  As usual, the program will encourage interactive discussion as much as possible with 30 minute discussion periods at the end of each session and a number of discussion fora held in the lunchtime breaks. 

Those lucky enough to register in time will enjoy building on the feature session content with the study tours and all delegates will share the celebrations of our various award winners.

The program will conclude with an exciting debate around the statement “The oceans are our solution for future water”.
