|UNESCO International Conference EMERGING POLLUTANTS IN WATER|
The international conference ‘’Emerging Pollutants in Water’’ will take place in Belgrade, from July 9th to 11th 2013, at the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (SANU).
The organisers are: United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) along with its International Hydrological Programme (IHP), UNESCO’s Category 2 Centre for ‘’Water for Sustainable Development and Adaptation to Climate Change’’ (WSDAC), ‘’Jaroslav Černi’’ Institute for Water Management, and the Serbian Water Pollution Control Society.
At the opening ceremony, the guests and participants will be addressed by the following speakers: Mr Milan Dimkić, PhD – the CEO of the ’’Jaroslav Černi’’ Water Management Institute, Ms Blanca Elena Jiménez Cisneros, PhD from UNESCO, Mr Heinz-Jurgen Brauch, PhD from DVGW/TZW, as well as by the representatives of the Serbian Ministry of Education and Science, and SANU.
During the course of the conference, leading Serbian and foreign experts will present the latest methods and researches concerning the presence of emerging pollutants in water, covering the following subjects:
The term ‘’emerging pollutants’’ denotes matter found in water which are not regulated by the international environmental standards (pharmaceuticals, industrial additives and similar matters). They can rarely be removed from waste water by the usual treatment methods. The risks of their presence in water are mostly unknown, and there is often a lack of information on their ecotoxicity, thus rendering it difficult to predict these pollutants’ effects on humans, aquatic and other organisms, and on ecosystems in general. The impact of climate change – especially on further drying up of small waters – can additionally aggravate the emerging pollutant situation in certain parts of the world. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance to get better acquainted with the phenomenon, distribution and fate of emerging pollutants in surface and ground water, as well as with their level of toxicity.
