HS1.1.1 | The Science-policy interface in hydrology (invited presentations and panel discussion)


The science-policy interface is not just as a way to increase the impact of our science, but it is also a scientific subject in itself. It presents several challenges to both scientists and policy-makers. They include understanding the different steps in the policy cycle: from setting the agenda to formulating, adopting, implementing, monitoring and evaluating polices. It is also crucial to know which facts and evidences are most needed at each step, so scientists can provide the best information at the right time and in the best way.

This session provides the opportunity for discussing and addressing the necessary skills to facilitate the uptake of hydrological sciences in policy formulation and implementation. We will discuss expectations, actual practice, research challenges and the skills that enable (or prevent) advances in the field.

This session will host invited-talks only and an interactive online/on-site panel discussion with the audience.

Convener: Maria-Helena Ramos | Co-conveners: Elena Toth, Wouter Buytaert, Micha Werner
