6th International Symposium on Knowledge and Capacity for the Water Sector

IHE Delft is now accepting abstracts for the 6th International Symposium on Knowledge and Capacity Development for the Water Sector. Hosted on May 27-29, 2020 in Delft, the Netherlands, the Symposium aims to build on the concepts of capacity development and move towards an implementation science.

The call for abstract is open for high-quality papers, with particular attention to the Symposium’s focus on leadership in knowledge and capacity development across sectors, disciplines, geographies and other boundaries.

In this 6th Symposium, themes to be addressed are listed here; submitters may propose complementary subjects within the scope of the Symposium’s focus. Submitters are encouraged to include, as cross-cutting themes, aspects relating specifically to (1) impact measurement and monitoring, and (2) adaptation to climate variability.

For more information on the Symposium and submission procedure, download the Call for Abstracts.

Watch our interview with Dr. Susanne Schmeier, Senior Lecturer at the IHE Delft Institute for Water Education, to get a glimpse of the Institute’s work on water-related security risks.
