If you've been reading this blog you know that I have been fussing about what I see as the great neglect of groundwater by the international water resources community (see my previous post). I have singled out the World Water Fora as examples of meetings where groundwater is often shunted aside.
I've also been hard on Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) because I think it gives groundwater short shrift.
So, much to my amazement, my session, whose title is reflected in this post's title, has been approved for inclusion into the upcoming Sixth World Water Forum. Hard to believe, and it is in the IWRM group to boot! But it took friends in high places - Ken Reid and Ari Michelsen of AWRA - to get this on the program (which still has not been finalized yet, and the meeting starts on 12 March).
Here is the session proposal, just submitted (they tend to do things backwards at 6WWF - this should have been submitted first, not last)):
Zut alors! Things are looking up!
