ICHARM -- The International Centre for Water Hazard and Risk Management


Introduction of new ICHARM

In the spring of 2011, ICHARM made major organizational changes. The previous three teams, the International Technical Exchange Team, the Disaster Risk Management Research Team and the Hydrologic Engineering Research Team, were disbanded into one group to further promote information sharing and collaboration within the centre. A new position, the Research Coordinator for International Water Disaster Risk Management, has been added and three chief researchers have been appointed to three different fields of service in public relations and training, risk management, and hydraulic and hydrologic research. These new changes will help ICHARM to use all available resources more flexibly and proactively in its principal activities such as research, training, information networking and projects.
