Sixth UGIT’s International Conference on
November 9-11, 2017

The sixth International Conference of the Union of Geographic Information Technologists (UGIT), “Climate change and sustainable water resource management – innovative geo - spatial solutions” is being hosted by the Department of Geography, Bangalore University from 9th -11th, November 2017.

As water is a basic necessity for life, it is of utmost significance to understand impact of climate change on water resources. This holds particularly true for a country like India, where water is a scarce resource and adverse impacts on water resources has recently been experienced as a consequence of climate change. The conference creates three days of unique opportunity for academics, climatologists & water resource professionals, who engage in research, management, policy and education to gather, discuss and collaborate for Climate change and sustainable water resource management. This gives a platform to interact and deliberate on potential geospatial solutions, recent approaches and advancements on climate change and sustainable water management. We are confident that the delegates will benefit by attending this international event and stay in the IT Hub of India. We look forward to see you in Bengaluru soon…!
