IHE Delft is organizing its 6th international symposium on knowledge and capacity development for the water sector on May 27-29, 2020, in cooperation with the OECD, Rand Water and other partners.

Update on the 6th International Symposium on Knowledge and Capacity for the Water Sector: From Capacity Development to Implementation Science, GOES ONLINE

Given the most recent advice from the Dutch Government on coronavirus, and with the safety of our communities a top priority, the decision has been made to move forwards with the Symposium as an online event. The organisers are now busy working to adapt the format, and provide online delivery that will allow the same mix of plenaries, panels and interactive small-group discussions that we need.

So keep the dates free and continue to register – but prepare to engage with the global water community from much closer to home!

The symposium calls attention to the strategic importance of knowledge and institutional capacity for policy, operational practice and education. This is urgently needed to address the current and growing challenges in water management for a sustainable, secure, just and equitable world.

The symposium will bring together scholars, decision-makers and practitioners to discuss the current and future role of capacity development and take a forward-looking and action-orientated approach. This is required to identify priority capacity development subjects and projects that increase resilience, equity and water security - by water themes, geographical areas, policy and implementation issues and education. As in previous years, the symposium will act as a catalyst to build commitment among participants, leading to future action and collaboration.

A call for papers will follow soon. You can register your interest in receiving updates on this event via this link.
