European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2017

Water Footprint Assessment session at the EGU General Assembly 2017, Austria, 23 - 28 April


The European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2017 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. It aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.

Water Footprint Network and partners will convene a session at the General Assembly entitled 'How can Water Footprint Assessment aid in monitoring progress and guiding action towards the Sustainable Development Goals’.

This session explores tools and approaches to monitor progress towards the water related Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). In particular, the focus is on how Water Footprint Assessment (WFA) can help measure various SDG targets and provide relevant information for policy and guided action towards meeting those targets. It involves identification of existing gaps and advances in scientific knowledge in this field.
