Global Flood Partnership Annual Meeting 2019


We are pleased to announce that the registration for the next Global Flood Partnership Annual Meeting is open! This year's meeting will take place on 11 - 13 June 2019 in Guangzhou, China hosted by Sun Yat-sen University.

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 Delft, Netherlands. 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.
