Part of the following topical collections:
  1. Climate-change research by early-career hydrogeologists

Abstract

Scientific outreach, international networking, collaboration and adequate courses are needed in both developed and developing countries to enable early-career hydrogeologists to promote long-term multidisciplinary approaches to cope with climate-change issues and emphasize the importance of groundwater in a global strategy for adaptation. One such collaboration has involved the Early Career Hydrogeologists’ Network of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (ECHN-IAH) and the UNESCO International Hydrological Programme’s (IHP) Groundwater Resources Assessment under the Pressures of Humanity and Climate Changes (GRAPHIC) project. This collaboration seeks to foster the education and involvement of the future generation of water leaders in the debate over groundwater and climate change.

Collection Thématique: Recherche sur le changement climatique par des hydrogéologues en début de carrière

Résumé

Le rayonnement scientifique, le réseautage international, la collaboration et des cursus de formation adéquats sont nécessaires dans les pays développés et en développement permettre aux hydrogéologues en début de carrière de promouvoir des approches multidisciplinaires à long terme pour faire face aux questions de changement climatique et insister sur l’importance des eaux souterraines dans une stratégie globale d’adaptation. L’une de ces collaborations a impliqué le réseau des hydrogéologues en début de carrière de l’association internationale des hydrogéologues (RHDC-AIH) et le projet d’évaluation des ressources en eau souterraine sous contraintes de l’humanité et des changements climatiques (GRAPHIC) du programme hydrologique international de l’UNESCO (PHI). Cette collaboration vise à favoriser l’éducation et la participation de la génération future des leaders du domaine de l’eau dans le débat concernant les eaux souterraines et le changement climatique.

Colección de Actualidad: Investigación sobre el cambio climático a cargo de hidrogeólogos jóvenes

Resumen

La divulgación científica, la creación de redes internacionales, la colaboración y cursos adecuados son necesarios tanto en países desarrollados como en desarrollo para permitir a los hidrogeólogos jóvenes a promover enfoques multidisciplinarios a largo plazo para hacer frente a los problemas del cambio climático y enfatizar la importancia del agua subterránea en una estrategia global de adaptación. Una de estas colaboraciones ha sido la Early Career Hydrogeologists’ Network de la Asociación Internacional de Hidrogeólogos (ECHN-IAH) y el proyecto Pressures of Humanity and Climate Changes (GRAPHIC) de la UNESCO International Hydrological Programme’s (IHP) Groundwater Resources Assessment. Esta colaboración busca fomentar la educación y la participación de la futura generación de líderes del agua en el debate sobre las aguas subterráneas y el cambio climático.

专题采集:年轻水文地质学家进行的气候变化研究

摘要

发达国家和发展中国家需要科学上的延伸、国际网络化、合作及充足的课程,使青年水文地质学家能够促进长期多学科方法应对气候变化问题,在全球适应战略中强调地下水的重要性。一项这样的合作涉及国际水文地质学家协会青年水文地质学家网络及联合国教科文组织的人类和气候变化压力下水文计划地下水资源评价项目。这项合作寻求地下水和气候变化争论中有关未来一代水领导的教育和参与问题。

Collezione Tematica: I giovani ricercatori e la ricerca sui cambiamenti climatici

Riassunto

Divulgazione scientifica, networking internazionale, collaborazione e corsi di formazione sono elementi necessari, sia nei paesi avanzati che in quelli in via di sviluppo, per premettere ai giovani idrogeologi di promuovere ricerche multidisciplinari volte ad affrontare le emergenze associate ai cambiamenti climatici e ad enfatizzare l’importanza delle acque sotterranee nelle strategie di adattamento globale. Una collaborazione di questo tipo ha coinvolto l’Early Career Hydrogeologists’ Network della Associazione Internazionale di Idrogeologia (ECHN-IAH) e il gruppo “Valutazione delle risorse idriche sotterranee sotto le pressioni dell’umanità e cambiamenti climatici” (Groundwater Resources Assessment under the Pressures of Humanity and Climate Changes - GRAPHIC) del Programma Idrogeologico Internazionale (IHP) dell’UNESCO (UNESCO-IHP). Questa collaborazione mira a promuovere l’educazione e il coinvolgimento della futura generazione di leader dell’acqua nel dibattito sulle acque sotterranee e sui cambiamenti climatici.

Coleção Tópica: Pesquisa sobre mudanças climáticas por hidrogeólogos em início de carreira

Resumo

Divulgação científica, trabalhos em redes internacionais, colaboração e cursos adequados são necessários tanto nos países desenvolvidos como nos países em desenvolvimento para permitir que os hidrogeólogos em início de carreira promovam abordagens multidisciplinares de longo prazo para lidar com questões de mudança climática e enfatizem a importância das águas subterrâneas em uma estratégia global de adaptação. Uma dessas colaborações envolveu a Rede de Hidrogeólogos em início de carreira da Associação Internacional de Hidrogeólogos (ECHN-IAH) e o Programa Hidrológico Internacional da UNESCO (IHP) com o projeto sobre Avaliação dos Recursos Hídricos Subterrâneos sob Pressões da Humanidade e Mudanças Climáticas (GRAPHIC). Esta colaboração busca promover a educação e o envolvimento da geração futura de líderes da água no debate sobre as águas subterrâneas e as mudanças climáticas.

Acknowledgements

The Topical Collection was developed as a joint initiative by the Early Career Hydrogeologists’ Network of IAH (ECHN-IAH) and the UNESCO-IHP GRAPHIC (Groundwater Resources Assessment under the Pressures of Humanity and Climate Change) project, led by Jason Gurdak, Marc Leblanc, and Tales Carvalho Resende. The IAH Commission on Groundwater and Climate Change (IAH-CGCC) and UNESCO-IHP GRAPHIC Programme are working together to improve our limited understanding of the relationships among groundwater, human development, and climate change.
