7th International Groundwater Conference on Groundwater Vision 2030 - Water Security, Challenges and Climate Change Adaptation

December 11-13, 2017, New Delhi

Organized by : National Institute of Hydrology, Roorkee, India In association with Association of Global Groundwater Scientists; Central Ground Water Board, India; and Texas A&M University,USA

(First Circular attached)

THE IGWC SERIES

The international conferences in IGWC series are the meeting point for groundwater professionals and researchers, bringing together experts in the various inter-related disciplines in the field of groundwater hydrology. Groundwater has emerged as a major resource in safeguarding agriculture and drinking water security in many parts of the globe. India is at present the largest and fastest consumer of groundwater in the world. The role of groundwater in contributing to water security and searching solutions for its conservation and sustainable management at present will play a crucial role to meet water demands of the population in future against the backdrop of climate change and to ensure food and water security for both the developed and developing countries. The aim of IGWC 2017 is to provide a common platform for researchers, academicians, water managers, industrialists and technocrats to discuss and present their vision for groundwater management in the face of growing challenges of the needs of rising earth population and anticipated impacts of climate change.
