ENERGY CRISIS, WATER SHORTAGE AND CLIMATE CHANGES IN THE MEDITERRANEAN AREA: THE INVOLVEMENT OF CHEMISTRY. International Conference. 2 - 6 May 2008 Castiglione della Pescaia (Grosseto - Italy).
Problems connected to the energy crisis, climate changes and water shortage were dramatically increasing in the last decade and represent today a major obstacle to the socioeconomical development of a large number of countries. The problems are particularly important in the Mediterranean area, owing to its high natural climatic variability, to its peculiar geographical situation and to its millenary history of fragmentation.
For these reasons the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei has decided to organize a meeting in which highly qualified experts from all countries of the Mediterranean region are asked to present their opinions and suggestions and to analyse the future actions to ensure a sustainable future to the Mediterranean area.
Conference site: The conference will be held in the four star hotel “Riva del Sole” located on the sea shore at the village of Castiglione della Pescaia, one of the most beautiful resort areas of Tuscany. Castiglione della Pescaia is easily accessible by train or bus from Rome, Florence and Pisa.
