Seminar Details

About the Seminar:

    As mentioned ISSUE-2017 targets to explore an emerging need of active and science-policy interface contributing to human endeavor to achieve resiliency against climate change, urbanization and population growth. The main objectives of this communication are to understand the expert's view, stakeholder’s perspectives, organizational role and site-specific problems/solutions to achieve the sustainable urban water environment. ISSUE-2017 is the third tier of the activities after the previous editions occurred last year when Indian and Sri Lankan collaborators visited University of Tokyo and Kanazawa University, Japan and one-day brainstorming workshop during March, 2017, in India. According to the approved roadmap, another major event is going to be organized in the next year. On behalf of the symposium organizing committee, I would like to invite interested researchers/experts to send their abstract and actively disseminate this announcement to potentially interested people/organization.
