IHP Burear Endorses U.S. UNESCO Center

The Bureau of the International Hydrological Program recently reviewed and endorsed the proposal of the United States of America for the establishment of an International Center for Integrated Water Resources Management (ICIWaRM) that would be hosted by the Institute for Water Resources of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and be set up in partnership with a consortium of U.S. universities and professional organizations. The latest regional meeting of IHP National Committees of Western Europe and North America – Region I (Istanbul, September 2007) had previously given its support to this U.S. proposal. Accordingly, the proposal is being forwarded to the forthcoming 18th session of the IHP Council.
