  Information - HS50 European and international sediment activities POSTERS ONLY (co-listed in GM)

Event Information
Major goals of internationally oriented sediment initiatives focus on the organization and promotion of information exchange on sediment related matters, ensuring a most direct access to policy makers, as well as motivating and activating the scientific and professional communities in regions and countries of interest.
One of these activities is the UNESCO sponsored International Sediment Initiative ISI. It serves as a vehicle to advance sustainable sediment management at global scale, taking into account the commitments of the international community to sustainable water resources development. ISI deals with sediment quantity and quality and focuses on economic, social and ecological aspects related to sedimentation.
Another important project/activity is the Global Evaluation of Sediment Transport (GEST-project). It entails the development of a global repository for data, information and documentation on soil erosion and sediment transport, which can serve as a basis for global assessment of erosion and sedimentation problems and their social and economic implications.
As another example of sediment related activities the world water assessment programme should be mentioned, where the topic of sediment is relevant.
This session will inform on ongoing international activities related to the broad field of sediment and water interaction by the presentation of posters. They are very welcome.
