About the event
On November 23rd, 2015, the Flood and Drought Management Tools (FDMT) project , in partnership with CapNet and the Hydro and Agro Informatics Institute (HAII), organised the 1st Flood and Drought Symposium bringing together high level representatives from national and international institutions to enhance the levels of understanding around the inclusion of information about floods, droughts and future scenarios into planning across scales.
This year, the 2nd Flood and Drought Symposium event is to be jointly hosted by HAII, the Metropolitan Waterworks Authority (MWA) and the Provincial Waterworks Authority (PWA), institutions that have been key stakeholders in Thailand for the FDMT project. The aim is to provide a forum for institutions to showcase and discuss the national vision on flood and drought management from different perspectives. The strategies and approaches being used to effectively prepare and respond to current and future challenges will be presented.
The Flood and Drought Management Tools project provides a set of applications which can be integrated into water management solutions from catchment to water utilities. The event will also be an opportunity to promote key stakeholders as the current and future champions of the Flood and Drought Portal.
