The International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydro-informatics and continuing education and training. IAHR stimulates and promotes both research and its application and by doing so it strives to contribute to sustainable development, the optimisation of world water resources management and industrial flow processes. Following the last IAHR Congress held in 2019 in Panama City, Panama under the theme “Water – Connecting the World”, the main theme of the 39th IAHR World Congress was “From Snow to Sea” focusing attention on the importance of considering the integral water cycle to address present and future challenges.
The INCULTUM coordinator prof. José María Civantos moderated a round table on human water relationship, and also and made one of the field visits to the historical irrigation systems of the Sierra Nevada.
