Global Flood Partnership 2017 Conference: From hazards to impacts - REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

We are pleased to announce that the next Global Flood Partnership meeting will take place on 27 - 29 June 2017 in Tuscaloosa (AL), USA, hosted by NOAA - Office of Water Prediction - National Water Center in collaboration with UCAR/COMET and the University of Alabama.

The objective of the Global Flood Partnership is the development of flood observational and modelling infrastructure, leveraging on existing initiatives for better predicting and managing flood disaster impacts and flood risk globally. It brings together all relevant communities (from scientific, government, humanitarian, and private stakeholders) to provide operational, globally-applicable flood forecasting, monitoring and risk evaluation tools and services to complement and provide added value to national capabilities.

This year’s theme is “From hazards to impacts” and participants will have the opportunity to showcase their latest relevant research and activities. As usual, we will review the advances and success stories of the Partnership and discuss the next steps to further strengthen the GFP.

As in the past meetings there will be various opportunities for participants to present their work, exchange ideas, and turn it into a lively and successful meeting. This includes a "Marketplace of Ideas" session, "Ignite" talks, Problem-solving session, workshops, poster pitch session and breakout groups.

The details of the meeting including a draft agenda and logistic information (hotel reservation, airport transport, bus shuttle, etc.) can be found here and will be regularly updated: 2017-GFP-Conference
