This Special Issue comprises selected papers from the Proceedings of the 7th International Electronic Conference on Water Science (ECWS-7), held from 15 to 30 March 2023 on sciforum.net, an online platform for hosting scholarly e-conferences and discussion groups.
In the last few years, six International Electronic Conferences on Water Sciences (ECWS-1, ECWS-2, ECW-3, ECWS-4, ECWS-5 and ECWS-6) have addressed a variety of important water-related issues. The seventh conference focused on adaptive water resource management, policies and governance to tackle the challenges caused by ongoing and dramatic climatic, environmental and societal changes. The ECWS-7 conference was a forum to explore and discuss the following key issues: adaptive water resource management; the enhancement of water security for humans, their economic activities and the environment; and formulation of new governance structures for water resource management and development. The conference intended to assist in formulating innovative methodologies and produce recommendations for best practices and the building of institutions that can meet them.
The ECWS-7 invited researchers from academia as well as water practitioners to contribute original findings, novel ideas, scientific concepts and new technologies and experiences to deal with water resource management, policies and governance, with a special focus on sustainability, resilience, uncertainty, risk and adaptation, making reference to the following topics:
- Integrated water resource management, policies and governance;
- Systems modeling of global change for informing future development paths;
- Hydrological response under climate variability and change;
- Hydro-economic modeling;
- Informing water policy through quantitative models;
- Finding the balance between water availability and environmental protection;
- Policies to enable climate change adaptation and contribution of stakeholders to adaptive water resources management;
- Instruments to assess environmental impacts and climate change effects (footprints, nexus approach, impact and risk assessment, life cycle assessment, etc.);
- Sustainable management of agricultural water and land resources;
- The urban water cycle and its adaptation to climate change;
- Advanced technologies to facilitate industrial and municipal wastewater reuse;
- Hydrological extremes under in changing climate;
- Water disasters—approaches for understanding vulnerable landscapes.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
