PSI-connect invites you to participate in 'The future of science-policy
connections' event hosted by UNESCO. The training workshop (19/04/12) and the
final conference (20/04/12) will provide you with insights into improving the
quality and value of interactions between scientists, river basin managers
and policy makers. Interactive sessions, reflections and experiences with
knowledge brokering instruments will bring together an audience looking for
new ways to strengthen the relationships between policy and science in the
field of water management and climate change.
This open international conference is intended as an arena for discussions
around recent findings in the
field of integrated water resources management (IWRM).
This conference will show the major findings from the EC-funded FP6 project
The conference is open and external oral presentations are highly encouraged.
Contributions from reseachers,
water managers, river basin planners and policy makers will be emphasised.

groups discussing various
IWRM-issues will ensure active participation of all attendance.
