World Toilet Day 2022: Making the invisible visible
Improving the global water and sanitation situation is the overarching goal of IHE Delft training and research – and as toilets are key in reaching this goal, we consider World Toilet Day a special day. World Toilet Day, marked November 19, was first celebrated in 2001 by the World Toilet Organization and was recognized by the United Nations in 2013. This year, the day focuses on groundwater – an often-invisible resource that is affected by the sanitation situation on the surface.

Webinar on resilient rivers and deltas: taking stock from research and practices from the DUPC2 programme
Climate change, sea-level rise, urbanization and competing water uses across sectors and regions, challenge rivers and delta systems in new ways. This affects the millions of people living in delta areas. This webinar takes stock of research and practices on rivers and deltas, conducted as part of DUPC2-supported projects. Join our webinar to learn, reflect and discuss: which evidence and good practices can we leverage for building resilient river deltas? Water resources, fertile soil, life-sustaining ecosystems, energy through hydropower: rivers and deltas provide some of the most essential resources for local populations and socio-economic development.
