International Workshop Urban Water Supply on 17-18 October 2019 in Valencia, Spain
Urban water suppliers all over the world have to adapt to an increasing population and a growing economy. Climate change is expected to increase weather variability and extreme events, causing significant alterations in the water cycle that will challenge the reliability of urban water supply systems. Water quality is also affected by increasing pollution, overexploitation and other climate change impacts. This international workshop will show relevant selected cases that have successfully coped with severe drought episodes and other situations that might become more frequent in the future due to climate change. Through examples from the INNOVA project and others, the workshop will also discuss the potential of climate services for a more efficient adaptation of urban water supply systems to climate change conditions.
