Region I meeting
May 14 @ 12:00 am - May 16 @ 3:00 pm
The next UNESCO IHP Region 1 meeting of experts will be taking place in Delft, the Netherlands on 14-16 May 2018.
This meeting will be co-hosted by IHE Delft Institute for Water Education (IHE Delft) and the International Groundwater Resources Assessment Centre (IGRAC). The actual IHP Region 1 meeting will take place on 14 and 15 May and it will be followed by a field trip to ‘s Hertogenbosch (the Netherlands) where the Conference on Global Network of Water museums is taking place. The costs associated with this field trip (with the exception of accommodation), will be covered by the organizers. A final agenda will be sent after the IHP Bureau meeting 20-22 February but as a tentative outline, please look into the following:
Monday 14 May 12:00 – 13:00 lunch at IHE Delft
13:00 – 17:00 IHP Region 1 meeting
Tuesday 15 May 09:00 – 15:00 IHP Region 1 meeting
Wednesday 16 May Time TBC, field trip to den Bosch
Next to the standard agenda items like a report on the IHP Bureau and National reports on IHP activities which may be considered more operational/administrative, we would very much like to leave sufficient discussion time for one or two content related issues. In this respect IHE Delft and IGRAC have proposed a discussion on transboundary water issues, looking into national and international transboundary levels and how we could contribute towards decreasing conflicts.
