Announcement of the 3rd RWHM Int. Conference
The 3rd IWA Rainwater Harvesting Management International Conference will take place in Gyeongnam, Goseong County, Republic of Korea, from May 20 to 24, 2012.
As a climate change adaptation countermeasure, a new paradigm of watershed rainwater management is gaining interest.

The final goal of the rainwater management will be making Rain Cities, in which all the stakeholders understand the importance of rainwater and make the social system by regulation to collect and utilize rainwater.
