HELPING Themes and Working Groups

HELPING Themes and Working Groups

Science for water solutions decade: HELPING – Hydrology Engaging Local People IN one Global world. Read the Concept Note and follow the process through the time plan. The overarching goal is understanding hydrological diversity and integrating knowledge across scales and regions. The Working Groups have been built by the community by submitting proposals. The list of suggested Working Groups, under each Theme, follows below along with their related proposal documents, first Working Group meeting presentations from November 2023, and the name and email of each Working Group leader. The Working Groups began in November 2023 and may run and evolve for the duration of the decade. If you cannot access the online Google form, or need any further assistance, please contact the IAHS office on [email protected] for more assistance.

Theme 1: HELPING with global and local interactions - Leader is Justin Sheffield, University of Southampton, England
