7-10 June: 1st Meeting of the IHP Task Forces on UNESCO's Ecohydrology Programme, University of the Algarve, Portugal

Fri, 09/06/2006

The objective of this meeting is to define workplans for the five task forces on ecohydrology that were launched at the meeting: Coastal Zones, Monitoring and Impacts of Global Change, Social Sciences, Education and Capacity-building and Demonstration Projects. Ecohydrology is a concept supported by the knowledge and quantification of biological and hydrological processes at the coastal zone and hydrographical basin level. This approximation makes the activation of aquatic systems possible in a natural way, increasing their resistance to negative impacts (of natural and human origin), through the implementation of low-cost environmental technologies that are sustainable over time.
