Conference of the Global Catchment Initiative (GCI) "The Global Dimensions of Change in River Basins - Threats, Linkages and Adaptation" 6-8 December 2010
An important new insight in river basin research and management is that water in its various forms "operates" in complex social, ecological and economic sectors forming an interlinked system of a much larger scale than an individual river basin or large aquifer. This new awareness of interconnectivities has spawned the concept of the "global water system", which in return bears important implications for upcoming research. Focus will need to move beyond river basins to seek sustainable solutions within the context of the global water system.
Women have a major role in water management and conservation, but are often excluded from the effort, a minister says. Women could help conserve, recycle and save water during shortages in Indonesia, said Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection Minister Linda Amalia Sari Gumelar at a water conservation workshop in Jakarta on Wednesday.
