Showcase Event!

We held our Showcase Event on 2 November 2017 that set out the findings of the MaRIUS research, and what outputs are available for use. We will post a link here soon to where you can access all the information presented on the day.


International Symposia

The MaRIUS project is proud to have held the last of its trio of International Symposia.  The Symposium, “Drought Science and Management” took place on 27 September 2016, at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, and featured a mix of oral & poster presentations.

The MaRIUS project has now hosted three international Symposia to bring together practitioners working on aspects of drought and water scarcity from across the world.  These Symposia have been public focused, and open to everyone.

The events have been very successful, attracting a large audience each year, and have helped disseminate work on drought and water scarcity across many different related topics by academic researchers, governmental regulators, and companies, to a wide audience.

The first MaRIUS inspired Drought Symposium, Drought Risk in the context of change, was held on Monday 22nd September 2014 at Magdalen College, Oxford.

The second Drought Symposium, Drought Risk and Decision Making, was held on Tuesday 8th September 2015 at Exeter College, Oxford.

The third Drought Symposium, Drought Science and Management, was held on Tuesday 27th September 2016 at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford.

Environmental Competency Groups

Within the MaRIUS project, Sarah Whatmore and Catharina Landström have developed further the concept of an Environmental Competency Group , building on their work on this methodology from past projects.

In order to spread news about the methodology and promote its uptake, they have created a web resource of materials to help individuals re-examine local environmental problems. Click here to find out more.
