2006-05-31 Lódz Poland
Established 31 May 2006, Lodz (Poland), as European Regional Centre for Ecohydrology, Lodz (ERCE), under the auspices of B-XB3383 - UNESCO, following an agreement with the Government of Poland, signed 8 Mar 2006, Paris (France). Grew out of the International Centre for Ecology (ICE) of the Polish Academy of Sciences, whose profile was based on ecological bioenergetics developed in the 1970s through the International Biological Programme (IBP). The background of "aquatic ecohydrology" was established in the framework of the UNESCO MAB "Ecotone" Programme. The concept of integrating hydrology and ecology was formulated and developed in the framework of the UNESCO International Hydrological Programme IHP V and VI. During the development of the framework of UNESCO IHP phases V and VI, ecohydrology has become a transdisciplinary science. One of the achievements of the IBP programme was the reduction of ecological processes to physics, providing fundamentals for dialogue between ecologists and hydrologists in the 1990s. The theoretical and empirical background for formulation of ecohydrological principles was developed in the 1980s and 1990s at the Department of Applied Ecology, University of Lodz. By agreement between the President of the Academy of Science and the Rector of the University of Lodz, cooperation between these institutions was formalized in 2004. Comes within the framework of F-XE0426 - International Hydrological Programme (IHP). Registered in accordance with Polish law.
Develop ecohydrological science and its implementation for restoring freshwater resources in the framework of the UNESCO International Hydrological Programme; deliver tools for implementing the European Water Framework Directive ad part of Poland's national cooperation.
