Socio-Environmental Flows

Full Title

Social and ecohydrological science connections for environmental flows


The objective of this workshop is to bring together natural scientists (with expertise in environmental flow assessment) and social scientists (with expertise in studying the relationships between basin ecosystems, human communities, and their cultures) in order to bridge their institutional knowledge on the study of environmental flows. The development of a new community of practice will establish a common approach for understanding the interdependencies of rivers and human communities, and advance an integrated science and policy of environmental flows.
