WSDAC in cooperation with the IRTCUD Center, Water Institute Jaroslav Černi and the expert team of the HORISONT 2020 Project “EuPOLIS” will organize a workshop on Nature-based solutions of urban hydrotechnical infrastructure under the impact of climate change, on August 23rd, 2022.
The Strategic Plan for the ninth phase of the Intergovernmental Hydrological Program (IHP-IX) covering 2022-2029 identifies key water priority areas to support the Members States to achieve Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially water-related SDGs and other water-related global agendas. One of the priority areas defined in the IHP-IX Strategy is Scientific research and innovation. This priority area includes among the other Activity 1.8 Development and sharing of knowledge and innovative solutions for improving water quality and reducing water pollution by the scientific community supported and communicated to support science-based decision-making, improve knowledge, services and reduce health-related risks.
Both UNESCO Centers strongly provide support for IHP-IX Phase activities. Considering that, at the end of August 2022, WSDAC and IRTCUD will organize a one-day workshop to present innovative nature-based solutions for improving water quality and reducing water pollution in urban areas. The workshop is intended for hydrotechnical engineers, urban planners, researchers, doctoral students as well as decision-makers.
