Delft, the Netherlands

The registration to the Global Flood Partnership (GFP) Conference 2018 has closed on 15th May 2018.

This year's meeting will take place on 25 - 27 June 2018 in Delft, the Netherlands hosted by Deltares . If you are new to the GFP community you may want to have a look at the report of last year's GFP Conference in Alabama, USA
This year's theme will be "Bridging the gap between science and users". Together we will discuss how to best foster the dialogue between scientists and users and how GFP products and expert knowledge can work in synergy to provide key information to emergency managers at different stages before, during and after severe floods.
