This workshop aims to bring together key researchers from across the globe working on river histories based on the sediment records derived from floodplain and fluvial lakes. Specifically, the objectives of the workshop are to:

- Survey records of various fluvial changes (sedimentology, paleoecology and paleohydrology) that are being generated around the world- Identify the challenges, and ways to overcome them, for reconstructing environmental changes from fluvial lake records

- Identify the range of proxies being used to reconstruct past river and wetland conditions and explore new opportunities

- Develop of a special task group within LIMPACS- Engage, via the PHAROS Water Theme, regional water managers for the potential in utilizing long-term fluvial records of past hydroclimate to manage natural resources

- Explore an output from the meeting e.g., special volume of Journal of Paleolimnology or a volume of Developments in PaleoEnvironmental Research.
