Commission for Water Sustainability of the International Geographical Union (IGU) invites you to the conference Water sustainability in a changing world, 11th – 14th June 2019, in Bucharest, Romania. Ongoing global climate change, population growth, urban sprawl, land use modification and rapid development of economic activities are some of the most relevant facets of the transformations affecting our planet in the last decades, with significant impacts on water resources. These changes have led to alterations of the quantitative, qualitative and ecological features of the aquatic environment, threatening the sustainability of water resources. Meanwhile, extreme hydrological events, which appear to have increased in frequency and magnitude, have caused noteworthy human, economic and environmental damages, sometimes catastrophic.
