CIGB 2022: ICOLD & CFBR Symposium “Sharing water: Multi-purpose of reservoirs and innovations” – proceedings from E3S Web of Conferences

E3S Web of Conferences is pleased to welcome to its platform the proceedings from the CFBR 2022 Symposium – Sharing water: Multi-purpose of reservoirs and innovations.

The symposium is part of CIGB-ICOLD 2022 organised by the International Commission of Large Dams/Commission Internationale des Grands Barrages (ICOLD/CIGB) and The French Committee on Dams and Reservoirs (CFBR). The event will take place in Marseille, 27 May – 3 June 2022. The symposium, organized by the CFBR, will be devoted to the multi-purpose of reservoirs and innovations in their use. The editors, Christine Noret and Laurent Peyras, believe that “We must establish a real hydrodiplomacy that is the art of building the country around this vital resource.”
