U.S. National Commission for UNESCO establishes U.S. National Committee for the International Hydrological Program
The International Hydrological Program (IHP) is the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization's (UNESCO) international scientific cooperative program in water research, water resources management, education, and capacity-building. In 2006, the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO established the U.S. National Committee for the International Hydrological Program to support IHP activities.
Members of the U.S. National Committee for the IHP meeting at the U.S. Department of the Interior.
The U.S. National Committee membership includes members of the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO, U.S. government agencies, and external organizations with expertise in water resources. U.S. National Committee IHP members serve terms of 1-3 years, with the responsibility for chairing the Committee rotated among the Federal agencies. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is chairing the Committee for the first two years.
