On behalf of
the 34th IAHR World Congress Organisation, IAHR and , we
are delighted to extend our personal invitation to you to join us in Brisbane,
Australia for the 34th World Congress of the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR).
Engineers Australia and its (NCWE)
are collaborating with IAHR to organize the 34th IAHR World Congress
together with the 33rd National Hydrology and Water Resources Symposium and the
10th National Conference on Hydraulics in Water Engineering.
theme "Balance and Uncertainty: Water in a Changing World" focuses on the
central roles of hydraulic engineering, hydrology and water resources in our
changing world, and how these roles link to the broader issues. A balance is
continually being sought between competing values in water engineering,
including the environment, the economy, tourism, social and indigenous values,
health aspects, aesthetics, and the needs of current and future generations.
Careful management and innovative solutions are required to balance these
values, and solutions must be able to deal with the uncertainty in the natural
world as well as the changing human world.
