Welcome to the 2017 International Perspective on Water Resources and the Environment Conference
Abstract Submission Form
ASCE-EWRI invites you to submit an abstract to the IPWE 2017 Conference. This conference will cover a wide variety of topics on sustainable environmental and water resources management. While technical sessions will include topics on developed and developing countries, much of the focus of this conference will be on water resources and the environment in developing countries.
