CfP: Conference on Sustainable Water Resources Management at IIT Guwahati [Jun 19-21]: Submit by Feb 15

The rapid growth of the population on the earth’s surface is forcing industrialization and urbanization. In developing countries, the process of urbanization is more often unplanned and disorganized, resulting in various hazards due to ecological imbalance. The rapid industrialization and urbanization, in turn, have also led to conversion of forest area to agricultural/urban area, filling up of low-lying areas to meet the resource need to support the increased population.

Unprecedented natural calamities like devastating flood, riverbank erosion, surface erosion, and landslide can be regarded as a manifestation of nature’s reaction to restore the balance. The increased emission of greenhouse gases due to industrialization and the continuation of unscientific agricultural practice in many parts of the world have led to climate change. Accelerated change in climate is expected to have a major impact on the future sustainability of the earth.

On the other hand, the increase in population has reduced the per capita availability of water which resulted in unplanned exploitation of both surface water and groundwater. Due to overexploitation, groundwater has been depleted in many parts of the world. As a result, it becomes uneconomical to withdraw groundwater from aquifers. The overexploitation of groundwater may also contaminate the aquifer.

This conference, hence, is being organized to provide a platform for discussion among various relevant disciplines so that some meaningful, practical strategies can be evolved towards achieving the goal for sustainable management of water resources of the globe.
