Tuesday 26 November (morning)
Our world is subject to continuous change and groundwater is right at the receiving end of many of those changes, being the world’s largest freshwater store. From climate variability and change to social attitudes and from technology advancements such as new sensors, remote imaging and rapid advancement in data transmission and processing; we are bound to develop novel new strategies in groundwater resource management. The panel will focus on the identification of the opportunities and challenges involved in assessing, managing and monitoring our strategic groundwater resources. This panel discussion will involve panel members representing end users, hydrogeologic practitioners and researchers operating at the forefront of our evolving groundwater world. Conference participants are encouraged to actively participate to ensure that the panel discussion is relevant and contemporary.
