The concept of a CoP refers to a group of people who have a common interest and share information and ideas to find solutions and recommendations for a certain topic or problem. The interactive space provided on this website enables information and opinions to be shared among members and users. The CoP will act as a platform through which members of the group can exchange technical information and experiences.

The UNESCO-IHP project on Water and Cultural Diversity aims to mainstream social and cultural components into water sciences and management to ensure sustainability of water resources and cultures. The project reflects UNESCO’s vision of water: sustainable management of water is as much cultural as it is technical. Click here for more information on the project itself.
