Under the unifying theme From Snow to Sea, the 39th IAHR World Congress will focus on the importance of an integrated and intelligent approach to the management of the full water cycle to address the global challenges faced by people and the environment.

From Snow to Sea highlights IAHR’s commitment to the critical role that a sound understanding of the water cycle plays in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set in 2015 by the United Nations, not the least of which is the connection between the ocean goal (SDG 14) and the water goal (SDG 6) in addressing land-based activities affecting the sea.

From Snow to Sea will also call attention to the importance of taking a holistic approach in water management, an approach that emphasizes the value of basic knowledge and modeling in understanding the processes that impact water use and management.
