AWARD: PDMA/IDRC Research Award for Young Scholars 2011
The Center on Law and Environment (PDMA) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) are co-hosting a Research Awards for Young Scholars, which will take place at the XIV World Water Congress, from 25-29 September, 2011 in Porto de Galinhas, Brazil.
PDMA and IDRC invite young researches to submit papers exploring the challenges of innovation in the field of impacts of climate change, in particular on the water sector, including water resources and water services and systems. Among the range of crosscutting issues related to climate change and water, the Research Awards for Young Scholars will focus on the proposed topics for the IWRA Conference:
- Adaptive water management;
- Water resources and global change;
- Governance and water law; and
- Knowledge systems.
Each of these subjects will alter the way water is managed; together, they will require fundamentally new priorities for technology and infrastructure, management and policy, allocation and pricing, laws and institutions, and above all, a new future outlook for water resources professionals.
Deadline: June 20, 2011
