Meeting of Responsible Representatives of UNESCO IHP National Committees of CIS Countries

Meeting of the Responsible Representatives of UNESCO International Hydrological Programme National Committees of Commonwealth of Independent States Countries will be held in Saint-Petersburg on October 1-2, 2008.

The event will be organized and hosted by the State Hydrological Institute. At the meeting the responsible representatives of the national committees will discuss the goals and priorities in the field of hydrology and coordinate participation in the 7th phase of the International Hydrological Programme (IHP-VII) taking into account interests and specificities of the CIS countries.  

Meeting of the Responsible Representatives is a consequent step after the 18th session of the IHP Inter Governmental Council that took place in June, 2008 in the Main UNESCO building in Paris. At this crucial event the Draft Strategic Plan of the IHP-VII for 2008-2013 was submitted for discussion. CIS countries expressed big interest in the participation in the programme, as many themes in the IHP-VII structure are of a doubtless scientific and practical interest to all of them. In view of the above it seems highly important and timely to hold the Meeting of Responsible Representatives of UNESCO IHP National Committees of the CIS Countries.
