Dear colleague,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee I would like to draw your attention to the forthcoming 4th EGU Leonardo Conference on the Hydrological Cycle:

Connections between Hydrology and Population dynamics, Policy making and Power Generation.

The Leonardo Conferences are complementary to the EGU General Assembly: they are focused on a specific topic and foster an intensive exchange among a limited group of participants.

The 2012 EGU Leonardo Conference will be held in Torino, Italy on 14-16 November 2012. Main themes around which we encourage a multi-disciplinary participation are:

  • Hydrology and Demographic pressure under global change:
    Societal adaptations and human induced land changes on catchment hydrology
    Virtual water trade and food security
    Desertification and primary water requirements
    Open science (data and tools) for sustainable development

  • Hydrology and water policies
    Opportunities and problems in the implementation of the international protocols and EU environmental legislation
    EU and international programs impact on the research in Hydrology
    Economic policy instruments and regulations measures for water management

  • Hydrology and Power availability for sustainable development
    Environmental sustainability and water conflicts related to hydropower
    Hydrological tools for assessing policies of hydropower efficiency
    Climatological implications in energy production from the sea
    Water-related energy issues in developed and emerging countries

  • Cross-cutting Theme: Governance of Water-related Risks

Financial support has been requested to cover expenses of a limited number of participants from developing countries.
Final abstract deadline is June 15, 2012.
