International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR)

Founded in 1935, the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR) is a not-for-profit, global, independent members-based organisation of hydro-environment engineers, professionals, and researchers.

IAHR stimulates and promotes both research and its application, and by doing so contributes to sustainable development, a holistic approach to water resources management, the protection of the environment, and a better water future for all.

The association engages today’s experts and helps prepare the next generation to respond to the complexities of future challenges through technical committees and working groups that exchange and work on the latest hydro-environment knowledge and innovations, collaborate on emerging and pressing water and environmental engineering issues, and influence research agendas; Institute members —a vibrant and global community of organisations, authorities, laboratories, companies, and educational institutions—; and Young Professionals Networks, which ensure that new generations of future hydro-environment professionals and researchers have the opportunity to engage, network, and connect with peers and senior members.

IAHR publishes and amplifies research excellence and best practice knowledge on hydro-environment science and engineering to achieve a sustainable water future through books, monographs, white papers, a scientific magazine, peer-reviewed journals, and proceedings.

It also convenes congresses, symposiums, webinars, workshops and meetings, providing learning experiences around the world focused on the most pertinent and emerging topics; and brings together international experts working with strategic partners for global outreach and advocacy on matters of interest and importance to its members.
