Modelling for freshwater related ecosystem services
17 July 2017 - 20 July 2017
The workshop is organized by the Catalan Institute for Water Research (ICRA) within the framework of GLOBAQUA. The workshop will introduce the basic principles of modeling of freshwater-related ecosystem services. During the workshop, participants will be able to co-develop their own case-study modeling exercise with the help of the lecturers. The mornings will be devoted to theory sessions to introduce the basics of ecosystem services, modeling, and modeling of socio-environmental systems; whereas the afternoons will be devoted to the implementation of the learned concepts into the individual case-studies. This stepwise approach will ensure that participants assimilate the basics of modeling of freshwater-related ecosystem services in coupled socio-environmental systems. The workshop is envisioned for researchers at any stage in their professional career, as well as water managers interested in the modeling of freshwater-related ecosystem services in coupled socio-environmental systems. Deadline for registration is June 15th 2017.
