The main theme of the conference is:
Water management at all scales: reducing vulnerability and increasing resilience
This conference will be an opportunity to learn about recent research and case studies in the field of science and water management. Participants with various expertise will reach Hotel Montreal Bonaventure for this event, in an ideal place to foster exchanges and for the emergence of innovative solutions in the field of water.
Many subjects related to water will be discussed during the conference, particularly those of interest for two CWRA committee: Canadian Committee for Irrigation and Drainage (CANCID) and Canadian Society for Hydrological Sciences (CSHS). In addition, the conference will host many sessions about groundwater, in collaboration with the Canadian Chapter of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH-CNC).
