UC Riverside to host 3-day international meeting on drought
Date:3/10/2010

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Population increases and climate change could swiftly exacerbate drought in many parts of the world. Drought, in turn, could lead to mass displacements of people, water and food shortages, as well as adverse economic and health impacts.

To compare drought impact and mitigation at the international level, the University of California, Riverside is hosting a three-day meeting this month that will bring together senior drought experts and policy makers from five drought-plagued regions: Spain, Australia, South Africa, Mexico, and California. The participants will discuss scientific and policy aspects related to drought in these regions.

Organized by UC Riverside's Water Science and Policy Center, the meeting, titled "International Drought Symposium: Integrating Science and Policy," will take place on March 24-26, 2010, at the Riverside Marriott Hotel, 3400 Market Street, Riverside, Calif.

Registration for the meeting costs $75-125. More information about the meeting, including registration information, can be found here. Reporters may attend the meeting at no charge.

Topics to be covered in the meeting include economics, agronomy, hydrology, ecology, technology, policy, and water management. A detailed program for the meeting can be accessed here.

"This meeting offers a golden opportunity for future collaboration on understanding drought impact and management from different countries' perspectives," said Ariel Dinar, the director of the Water Science and Policy Center and a professor of environmental economics and policy at UCR. "While the drought situation in California is said to have been improved in recent w
