CAIWA 2007

The International Conference on Adaptive and Integrated Water Management took place in Basel (Switzerland) now about a month ago. It was an intensive week, with a lot of presentations, panels, discussions and interesting informal talks about such things as scaling, adaptation, uncertainty and knowledge frames. There was a good representation of the NeWater crowd but also quite some external people, including well-known international scholars such as Oran Young, Elinor Ostrom and Helen Ingram.
