Grants

Researchers and practitioners from Africa, submit your abstracts for the 39th IAHR World Congress before 15 November 2021

The International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR) and the 39th IAHR World Congress Organising Committee are delighted to announce a grant of EUR 5,000 (thanks to the government of China’s Ministry of Water Resources) to cover the 2-year membership fees for up to 20 individuals and 4 IAHR World Congress registrations for delegates coming from Africa.

Focus on Africa

The grants will be awarded to the best final papers submitted to the 39th IAHR World Congress by delegates from African countries and will give the winners the opportunity to join the world-leading community of research and best practice in hydro-environment engineering and enjoy IAHR’s unique benefits.

The fragility of water security in the African region and ongoing challenges to access water and develop hydro-environment skills and capacity mean that widespread potential remains to be unleashed throughout the continent. IAHR’s 2020-2023 strategic plan places particular focus on providing a variety of opportunities for hydro-environment researchers and practitioners from the African region.
