Special Session - Innovative Techniques to Inject Ecological Knowledge into Water Management I
Efforts to manage water to meet human needs often neglect the needs of freshwater species and ecosystems, with detrimental ecological consequences. The ultimate aim of much of our scientific research is to promote sustainable, healthy, river systems through informed decision-making. The theme of this session is water management and innovative techniques used to promote the application of ecological knowledge to achieve ecological outcomes. Talks in this session will focus on innovative technology transfer methods, including the use of the e-learning techniques.
