The International Center for Integrated Water Resources Management (ICIWaRM) hosts a visiting scholar program to further its mission of advancing the science and practice of integrated water resources management (IWRM). This Visiting Scholar Program brings recognized experts in IWRM to ICIWaRM to conduct applied research and study efforts relating to technology transfer and capacity building.
ICIWaRM’s program addresses the science- and research-driven programmatic goals of UNESCO’s International Hydrological Programme-VII. Visiting scholars at ICIWaRM therefore focus their efforts on practical science, applied research, and technology development to improve IWRM practices in developing countries. Visiting scholar activities must enhance capacity building and technological development as they apply to countries in ICIWaRM’s geographical areas of emphasis: Central and South America, the Caribbean and Africa.
Collaboration with partners is central to ICIWaRM’s mission. Visiting scholars provide support to existing UNESCO IHP programs and fellow UNESCO Water Centers. Visiting scholars also collaborate with ICIWaRM’s many academic, international and non-governmental partners, as well as U.S. Government partner agencies.
