Presentation by guest speaker Prof. Dr. Klement Tockner, President FWF Austrian Science Fund, Vienna / IGB Berlin, in the BayCEER Kolloquium:
We most likely are just at the beginning of the “great acceleration” of the Anthropocene and therefore underestimate the immense environmental alterations we will face in the near future, in particular in the water sector. For example, humans re-engineer the global hydrological network through the construction of large dams, water transfer megaprojects, and other engineering projects. However, many engineering projects–in particular so-called megaprojects–are high-risk projects because they require major financial investments, demand long time frames from planning to completion, and have major socio-economic and ecological ramifications.
