July 10, 2017 - July 14, 2017

The South African National Committee of the International Association of Hydrological Scientists (SANCIAHS) invites you to participate in the 2017 IAHS General Assembly to be held from July 10-14in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
The theme of the meeting is “Water and Development: scientific challenges in addressing societal issues” which is particularly appropriate in the context of an IAHS General Assembly meeting being held for the first time in sub-Saharan Africa and is well aligned with the IAHS Panta Rhei.
South Africa has a rich and varied hydrological history and has been a research leader in many aspects of hydrology through years of paired catchment and process hydrology research, model development and in the inclusion of scientific knowledge as exemplified by the South African National Water of 1998.   SANCIAHS is a strong and active network representing South African hydrologists and has been active for nearly 40 years recently hosting it’s 18th national symposium. SANCIAHS is joined by Waternet as a major scientific partner in hosting the 2017 General Assembly. WaterNet is a southern Africa regional network of university departments and research and training institutes active in integrated water resources management.

Submission of abstracts for the various symposia and workshops is now open.
