Overview

The role of water in our communities, from local to regional and up to global levels, poses a series of key questions about climate change, about the anthropogenic impact on the environment, and about all the interconnected actions and events that affect the availability and quality of the resource. All these questions share a common demand for more scientific knowledge and information. In this particular context the disciplinary boundaries are fading, and there's a growing need to create broader connections and wider collaborative interdisciplinary groups, aimed at building an integrated knowledge-base at the service of stakeholders and of the whole society, in order to face up the new dynamics of human-hydrologic systems. Following this concept, contributions of multiple disciplinary backgrounds, such as Law studies, Hydrogeology, Monitoring and Information Technologies, Geophysics, Geochemistry, Environmental Sciences, Systems Engineering, Economics and Social studies, converge and interact in this workshop. This book is the result of a three-day ARW (Advanced Research Workshop), that explored different aspects of the environmental security assessment process, focusing on the assessment, monitoring and management of resources, giving an overview of the related scientific knowledge.
