The UNESCO/IHP –ISARM works as the scientific supervision and coordinates monitoring and project activities for the Iullemeden project.

About the partner:

UNESCO - the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) was founded on 16 November 1945. For this specialized United Nations agency, it is not enough to build classrooms in devastated countries or to publish scientific breakthroughs. Education, Social and Natural Science, Culture and Communication are the means to a far more ambitious goal : to build peace in the minds of men.

UNESCO - International Hydrological Programme (IHP)

IHP is UNESCO's international scientific cooperative programme in water research, water resources management, education and capacity-building, and the only broadly-based science programme of the UN system in this area.

IHP’s primary objectives are:

  • to act as a vehicle through which Member States, cooperating professional and scientific organizations and individual experts can upgrade their knowledge of the water cycle, thereby increasing their capacity to better manage and develop their water resources

  • to develop techniques, methodologies and approaches to better define hydrological phenomena

  • to improve water management, locally and globally

  • to act as a catalyst to stimulate cooperation and dialogue in water science and management

  • to assess the sustainable development of vulnerable water resources

  • to serve as a platform for increasing awareness of global water issues.

The planning, definition of priorities, and supervision of the execution of IHP are ensured by the Intergovernmental Council. The Bureau of the Intergovernmental Council of the IHP co-ordinates the work of the Council between sessions.
