2nd IAHS Panta Rhei International Workshop

The Second IAHS Panta Rhei International Workshop on

Water System Knowledge Innovation and its Practices in Developing Countries

November 20-22, 2017
Gorgan, Iran

 The four main objectives for this workshop are:

(1)                 To understand major water system problems and their root causes particularly in developing countries in coupled nature-human systems;

(2)                 To demonstrate current hydrological knowledge of models, tools and case studies to deal with water system problems e.g. water scarcity, water-related disasters, groundwater depletion, water-related poverty and conflicts;

(3)                 To identify demand for hydrological innovation to meet the grand water system challenges particularly IWM under the severe climate change conditions as well as under unstable policy and management conditions; and

(4)                 To develop a multi-national and multi-disciplinary cooperation framework with a concrete working plan in order to provide capacity building, monitoring equipment, and free software packages and decision support systems for developing countries, and to expand Panta Rhei as well as IAHS through establishing national committees and regional networks and increasing members in these counties.
