RWHM 2012 call for papers

The deadline for submission of abstracts for the 3rd IWA Rainwater Harvesting Management International Conference is 15th December 2011. The conference will take place from 20-24 May 2012 in Gyeongnam, Goseong County, Republic of Korea.

As a climate change adaptation countermeasure, a new paradigm of watershed rainwater management is gaining interest. From the lessons that Dinosaurs or some ancient civilisation extinct, because of the failure of adaptation to climate and environment change, current civilisation should learn how to prepare the social system to adapt climate change for sustainable life.

The themes of this conference include the wisdom of old civilisation, scientific and engineering aspect of rainwater management, communication and education of rainwater and environment. The final goal of the rainwater management will be making Rain Cities, in which all the stakeholders understand the importance of rainwater and make the social system by regulation to collect and utilise rainwater.

We believe that this conference will provide great occasions for experts in Rainwater Harvesting and Management including governments, academics, utilities and industries to gather together for making beneficial presentations and discussions in various fields in a timely manner and actively communicating with the various parties concerned. There will be presentations, poster sessions and workshops.

Through the promotion of RWHM, we expect to realise Rainwater Revolution in the Cities, from Drain City to Rain City for energy and resource saving and as a tool for climate change adaptation.

  • Good Examples and Practices of RWHM
  • Climate change and Rainwater Management
  • LID and rainwater management
