Water Management in Cold Climate

Harbin, China 12-14 January 2020

The 2nd EWA Cold Climate Conference: Water Management in Cold Climate

The first Cold Climate Conference was held in Spitsbergen, Norway. Its popularity leads to the upcoming conference: The second conference will bring experts together with vast experience in order to exchange knowledge, presents solutions and ideas and elaborate on lessons learned in this field. Most of the water technologies are developed without considering the special needs of cold climate conditions. Due to Climate Change impacts, adopted solutions and further developments are necessary. The sensitive water bodies in cold climate must be protected. As water has no boundaries and pollution must be avoided, especially in the fragile cold climate. Together with the Harbin Institute of Technology, the European Water Association will hold the Second EWA Conference on Cold Climate. The conference will be held during the beautiful Harbin Snow and Ice Sculpture Festival 2020.
