A Survey on Water Safety Plans by WHO

What is the survey objective?
The primary objective of this survey, led by World Health Organization (WHO), is to achieve a better understanding of the global and regional progress of risk assessment and risk management approaches applied in drinking water supplies. In the WHO Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality, such approaches are known as Water Safety Plans (WSPs). Throughout the survey, the term WSP is used; however, the survey also seeks information on equivalent approaches that may be named differently. The survey has been designed to collect important information on WSP implementation and related benefits and challenges in order to inform and strengthen future WSP support, guidance and advocacy.

The Great Frisbee Challenge of 2013

As is now a tradition at IAHS meetings, a Frisbee game was organized at the Gothenburg Joint Assembly. Considering the book "Runoff Prediction in Ungauged Basins" had just been published and officially presented with great pomp and ceremony, some IAHS members suggested that the co-authors should also demonstrate their skills on the Frisbee field. However, there were 130 co-authors and it proved difficult to accommodate all of them on the Frisbee lawn!

IAHS Launches its New Website

The new IAHS website has been designed to incorporate the information that was available on the original one and more,  to be user-friendly and to provide greater functionality behind the scenes allowing different administrators to have access to specific parts of the site. Bringing the enormous archive of IAHS publications and other documents that Pierre Hubert, former IAHS Secretary-General, organised at the original site across to this new one has been a major task.  

The web site is still under development but we hope that you will like this new site and readily locate all you require on it. If something is missing, or if you find a glitch, please let [email protected] know.
