International Workshop on the Development of near-term climate scenarios for vulnerable watersheds

In the framework of the MWAR-LAC project and with support from the RALCEA project (managed by CAZALAC in colaboration with the Joint Research Center), this workshop will take place in La Serena, Chile, between 3 and 8 August

The objective of this activity is to develop probabilistic scenarios for near-term climatic conditions for vulnerable pilot watersheds in Latin America, based on a historical analysis of climatic variability, combined with an assessment of current and projected sensitivity to climate change. Linked to decision support models, such as WEAP, these near-term climatic scenarios will inform about possible future vulnerabilities in the water supply in these water-stressed environments. The workshop aims at experts of hydrometeorological services in the region with knowledge of hydrology, frequency analysis and statistics, and that have experience with data management. Read more.
