Welcome to WRE 2021!

Influenced by the current pandemic situation worldwide, most participants are not able to join the conference in Xi'an physically. After comprehensive consideration,) The 7th International Conference on Water Resource and Environment (WRE 2021) will be changed from a hybrid mode (Online and Offline) to online mode via MS TEAMS only (virtual conference without any physical participation) from November 1-4, 2021.

Debuted in July 2015, the first WRE conference was held in Beijing with more than one hundred participants. The WRE conference highlighted the needs to maintain the sustainability of indispensable water resources under increasing uncertainty and to protect the fragile water environments under the growing concern of intensive use of water we are facing today. As an annually held conference, this conference has been successfully held Online in 2020, and physically held in Shanghai, Qingdao, Kaohsiung, and Macau in the past years.

Having held the position under several of the most important dynasties in Chinese history, Xi’an is one of the oldest cities and the oldest of the Four Great Ancient Capitals in China. It is the capital of 13 ancient dynasties in China, which could date back to 1200 years ago. Even before the lives of Christ, Mohammad, and Siddhartha, Xi'an was an excellent city and already influencing the world outside of the Great Wall of China. Best known for its ancient historical ruins, museums, cultural relics, and archaeology, Xi'an draws visitors wanting a glimpse of the Middle Kingdom 's long and spectacular history.

We look forward to meeting you all in the beautiful city Xi’an!
