Successful 27th ICOLD in Marseille
The headquarters city of the World Water Council hosted the 27th World Congress on Large Dams - ICOLD and the 90th Annual Assembly, from May 27 to June 3.
More than 1,400 delegates from over 100 countries attended, a participation that testifies to the fundamental issues that reservoirs occupy today.
Loïc Fauchon, President of the World Water Council and member of the ICOLD Advisory Board, who has been involved in 4 years of preparation, spoke at the opening session.
He graced this international forum to evoke the concept of the "double necessity,” which consists of continuing to create water reserves on the one hand and, on the other hand, evolving the design of reservoirs to consider multi-use and the protection of nature.
He also spoke at the high-level round table on the role of the major institutional players.
