Event WFD Lille 2013

Introduction

The conference will review technical challenges faced by Member States, stakeholder organisations and scientists, while integrating climate change components (understanding, prevention, preparedness) into the River Basin Management Planning under the Water Framework Directive (WFD), in particular adaptation measures expected to take place within the 2nd RBMP. It will look at the way cross-sectoral and multidisciplinary co-operation has developed with a strong focus on climate change research, and how emerging issues such as adaptation to climate change will be considered in the water sector in the future.     

Sponsorship

The Chairmen of the Organising and Programme Committees are seeking sponsors to support this popular conference.  Without the support of sponsors the conference could not proceed, so we do hope that organisations will be able to offer a commitment to this event.  If you are interested or know of other organisations which might be interested, please contact the secretariat about the opportunities  available.
