Geoscience and hydrological sciences

The UNESCO Intergovernmental Hydrological Programme (IHP) is a unique UN intergovernmental programme that is dedicated to water research, water resources management and the relevant capacity building.

The International Geoscience Programme (IGCP), founded in 1973, supports geoscience cooperation projects on the research focuses defined by UNESCO. In Austria, both programmes are overseen by the National Committee for Geo/Hydro Sciences at the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW).
