The International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR) is pleased to launch the inaugural IAHR Online Forum, a new series of virtual events aimed at bringing together the community of hydro-environment professionals in the years in between the IAHR World Congresses by making the most of digital opportunities.
The IAHR Online Forums aim to bring together the continually evolving knowledge and innovations of the Hydro-Environment community and provide an important reference for all those who seek to understand the latest challenges and trends of hydro-environmental solutions and research.
Water security, the adaptive capacity to safeguard the sustainable availability of, access to, and safe use of an adequate, reliable, and resilient quantity and quality of water for health, livelihoods, ecosystems, and productive economies, is at the core of sustainable development. The 2021 IAHR Online Forum will focus on the challenges and trends of hydro-environmental solutions and research and will include key plenaries and technical sessions that cover a range of topics essential to water security.
The Online Forum caters especially for engineers, experts, researchers, and organisations. The Forum is a premier reference for all who are interested in quickly understanding the state of play of the global hydro-environment engineering and research community. IAHR’s wide range of Technical Committees and Working Groups will make special contributions to highlight the issues and directions in their respective fields.
