Published on Friday, September 10, 2010 by Marie Pellen

Summary

This seminar aims to discuss the interactions between regionalisation of water management and adaptive management. Regionalisation embeds many scales of time and space, which have to be combined to improve and change stakeholder practices. The seminar will bring together international specialists to analyse how adaptive management can deal with institutional, technical and political multi-scalar issues in order to foster change of practises. This seminar is organised in partnership with AgroParisTech Clermont-Ferrand, INRA-SAD and UMR METAFORT.
