Over the past five years Australia has witnessed several extreme events including bushfires, droughts, fish deaths and widespread flooding. There is scientific consensus that extreme weather events will become more frequent with changing climate. The challenge for water practitioners is how to plan for a more extreme present and future while dealing with deep uncertainties.
These challenges bring more uncertainty to managing our water resources, human safety and the ability to continue and protect our ecosystems. Collaboration, innovations and excellent engineering practice will need to come together to ensure resilient communities in years to come.
The aim of the 2023 Hydrology and Water Resources Symposium (HWRS 2023) is to improve our understanding of the inherent complexity of water sources, hydrologic and ecologic systems in uncertain times and will seek to drive innovative technologies and solutions for this grand challenge.
