37th IAHR World Congress


In August 2017, a group of WISE CDT students from Cardiff University attended the 37th IAHR World Congress in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where they each presented their work and expanded their network; with over 1,200 experts from more than 60 countries present. The theme “Managing Water for Sustainable Development – Learning from the Past for the Future” focussed on the central roles of river and sediment management, flood management, environmental hydraulics and industrial flows, estuarine, lakes and coastal management, water resources management and urban water management.


Cardiff University was well represented with 11 members involved in the conference, including a keynote talk by Professor Roger Falconer, and presentations by three WISE CDT students: David Glover, Jonathan King and Nejc Coz.
