The IHP UNESCO Regional Hydrological Cooperation of the Danube Countries is based on the one hand on project work and on the other on regular conferences, with the aim to serve as a forum for discussion and exchange of views among the specialists involved. The first conference was organised half a century ago in Budapest with keynote lectures in the field of hydrological forecasting by Professors Kalinin, Kresser, Lászlóffy and Szesztay. World experts in the field of water and environmental protection will gather in the upcoming Conference convened under the auspices of the Hungarian National Committee for UNESCO International Hydrological Programme (IHP) and WMO Hydrology and Water Resources Programme (HWRP) in cooperation with many other international and professional initiatives, organisations and agencies.

The XXVth Conference of the Danube Countries on Hydrological Forecasting and Hydrological Bases of Water Management is organised by the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) and the „VITUKI” Environmental Protection and Water Management Research Institute (VITUKI).

Parallel organised seminars and symposia will deal with traditional and newly arising topics of hydrology, water management, protection of the aquatic environment.

Since 1987, Working Group of experts - representatives of the IHP UNESCO National Committees of the Danube Countries meet on a yearly basis in one of the 18 member countries in order to coordinate the projects. This year, the 23rd Working Meeting of the experts and representatives of the Regional Hydrological Cooperation of the Danube Countries will be held on 15 June, occasion during which the report on “Hydrology and Water Resources Management in the Danube Catchment - Structures, Players, Projects, Financial Resources” by Dr. A.
