NEXUS Calendar

The third edition of the International Forum wants to contribute to a better management of transboundary waters resources whether they are surface waters or groundwaters.

The International Forum aims to promote knowledge-sharing and best-practices exchanges in the field of transboundary waters management. Special attention will be paid to the presentation and sharing of tools facilitating action. To facilitate this knowledge-sharing and know-how exchanges, the International Forum will be organized around three principal themes (see here-after). Several case-studies will be also showcased. Among other things, the success of the International Forum rely on the quality of communications that will be given. Thus we count on your participation!
