INNOVA Ezine issue 7 released
Challenges and Solutions for Urban Water Supply in a Changing Climate and World
The first Valencia E-Zine introduced the bio-physical characteristics of the Valencia region in Spain, as well as the main challenges for the water management and supply to the city of Valencia under climate change. This E-Zine describes the main findings and lessons learned from a workshop convened by the Universitat Poli-tècnica de València (UPV), the Climate Service Center Germany (GERICS) and Global Omnium. In October 2019, experts from all over the world reunited in Valencia to exchange knowledge in the context of the international workshop “Challenges and solutions for urban water supply in a changing climate and world”. The workshop gathered more than 80 participants and speakers from both a science and business back-ground.
This EZine is highlighting several aspects of urban water supply. Fresh water is a vital resource for human life – not just for drinking, but also for agriculture, washing and many other activities.
Water is among the key natural resources that is going to suffer from the impact of climate change. Some of the main questions that the water sector is forced to answer are how to improve the efficiency of water treatment and supply facilities; how to face different extreme weather conditions, such as drought or flooding scenarios; and how to increase the ratio of reused water
The ezine was initiated by INNOVA (‘innovation in climate services provision’) project and is funded by the European Research Area for Climate Services(ERA4CS).
