WETPOL 2019

  • Wetlands

  • Ecosystems

WETPOL is an international conference bringing together wetland scientists, engineers, and practitioners working on wetland ecosystem services, including water quality improvement, climate regulation, and flood control. In 2019, the 14th annual SWS Europe Chapter Meeting will be organized in association with the WETPOL conference in Aarhus, Denmark.

The conference will create a framework for wetland scientists and practitioners to exchange knowledge and advance the overall understanding of these complex ecosystems. The goal is to improve our understanding of the role wetlands perform in processing nutrients and contaminants, and to discuss and demonstrate how restored and constructed wetlands in the future, via their associated ecosystem services, can contribute to ensuring sustainable water management and resource recovery while at the same time regulating and mitigating impacts of global climate change.
