WMCC 2024

The Conference

3rd International Conference on Water Management in Changing Conditions

The 1st and 2nd WMCC conferences held in 2016 (Spitsbergen, Norway) and 2020 (Harbin, China) focused on water management in cold climates. Responding to the needs of the scientific community, from now on the WMCC will focus on Water Management in Changing Conditions. We will specifically cover three aspects (1) Changing temperatures – especially colder climates, (2) Changing climate – causing changing precipitations, (3) Changing populations – due to seasonal activities increasing populations to serve.

The conference will be hosted by IFAT-Munich – the world’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management, giving a unique opportunity to learn about market-leading suppliers and technologies. European Water Association (EWA) will organise WMCC 2024 supported by the International Water Association (IWA).
