From 2011-11-21 to 2011-11-24
Venue: Panama, Republic of Panama
The aim of the Symposium is to exchange good practices as well as in-depth theoretical analyses to help stimulate ideas and actions for better stewardship of this most essential resource. The learning and sharing of good practice experience amongst HELP basins have greatly benefited the global community to improve the sustainable management of water resources, through continuous dialogue and involvement of stakeholders from the community to government level.
The international symposium will harvest knowledge from around the world to improve water management and the lives of all of us that depend upon it. This will be achieved by accomplishing the following objectives:
- Provide a forum to facilitate knowledge exchange, based on real experiences and innovation from river basins across the world;
- Support international efforts to ensure sustainable and integrated management of hydrological resources by highlighting and documenting lessons learned;
- Evaluate experiences from the HELP initiative network of basins around the world; and
- Set new directions for research, knowledge and capacity building needs related to water security.
