The nonprofit organisation International Water Resources Association (IWRA) is hosting its Islands Water Congress from 4-6 Sep 2024. It has extended its submission of proposals deadline to 15 Feb 2024, seeking papers, special sessions and other creative contributions from academics, water professionals, and stakeholders on the three themes of administration, collaboration and innovation, both in relation to the Faroe Islands and beyond.
As a high-level global event organised in collaboration with a different island host every two years, IWRA will develop a body of learning to boost freshwater opportunities and advance solutions to freshwater challenges. For its first edition, IWRA has partnered with Jarðfeingi Faroese Geological Survey. It will be in Tórshavn, Faroe Islands, with the theme ‘Freshwater and islands: administration, collaboration and innovation’. The congress seeks contributions reflecting the challenges experienced in islands from all geographic contexts to enable a broad discussion reflecting the diverse water challenges faced by islands.
