Intl. Water Conference Info





Dear Colleague:
Accessible, quality insured information is the basis for making decisions
about water resources. 

The WaterWeb Consortium
(<http://www.waterweb.org/>www.WaterWeb.org) has been actively meeting for six years and working on processes and techniques to make quality water information easily available.

Time is running out to make plans to attend The Sixth Water Information
Summit (http://www.irc.nl/page.php/135).  WIS-6 will be held in Europe for the first time 9-12 September 2003, Delft, The Netherlands.

The Summit will focus on strategies to overcome the digital divide between
North and South and within the South and to share knowledge and information in support of the management of the water and sanitation sectors.

The annual Information Summit brings together water information users and providers. WIS-6 will provide a forum to discuss the state of the art and trends in knowledge management, the application of web-based technologies and the formation of partnerships. Having introduced the prototype Water Portal of the Americas
(<http://www.waterportal-americas.org/>www.waterportal-americas.org) at the Third World Water Forum (Japan, March 2003), one focus of the Summit will be the future of water portals, web based interactive sites designed to make it easier to search for water related information.

The most current Summit information is available at:
http://www.irc.nl/page.php/135

Please make plans to attend.
I look forward to seeing you in Delft.
Regards,
Terry Dodge
