21-25 August 2023, Vienna, Austria
At the 40th IAHR World Congress 2023, a Special Session named
“INTRODUCING THE “WFE” NEXUS TO CENTRAL ASIA FOCUSING ON SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OF SMALL HYDROPOWER”
will be held.
Central Asia has large potential for hydropower generation, however, water resources are unevenly distributed and heavily exploited by irrigation. Advancing sustainable hydropower generation in this region, therefore, requires interdisciplinary research including hydrology, ecology, hydromorphology and hydraulic engineering as well as the Water-Food-Energy (WEF) Nexus Concept.
This Special Session covers research related to ongoing hydropower projects in Central Asia with the focus on sustainability, replicability, new findings and tools. It was initiated by Hydro4U partner BOKU and will be chaired by a team of TUM, BOKU and HSOL.
Abstracts and contributions to this Special Session can be submitted until the 15th of January 2023.
