I am pleased to invite you to participate in the drafting of our next two "Handbooks on Basin Management", which will be published next year on the occasion of the World Water Forum in Daegu-Gyeongju in South Korea.
These two Handbooks will fit in with the collection launched in 2009 and will be a continuation of the two previous publications.
Their topics will be:
1. on the one hand, measures for adapting to the effects of climate change in river basins, and,
2. on the other, protection, restoration and management of water/aquatic ecosystems and the services they provide in the basins of rivers and lakes.
These publications, like the previous handbooks of 2009 and 2012, will be based on the practical experience and know-how gained in the field in the basins worldwide.
In order to achieve this goal, we would like your cooperation in this work, especially for providing relevant case studies on adaptation to climatic change (Handbook III) and on protection, restoration and management of aquatic ecosystems (Handbook IV) in your basin.
You will find attached the terms of references (ToR) giving details on the partnerships established with our associated organizations, the provisional contents of these next two publications, as well as the topics on which we request your participation.
In INBO Permanent Technical Secretariat: Daniel VALENSUELA (Handbook III) and Christophe BRACHET (Handbook IV) are respectively in charge of coordinating these publications. Please contact them at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org .
In order to meet the deadlines for publication, your contributions should reach us as soon as possible and not later than 15 June, 2014. Thank you in advance for your contribution.
