International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research

The International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), founded in 1935, is a worldwide, non-profit, independent organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environment and in particular with reference to hydraulics and its practical application. IAHR was called the International Association of Hydraulic Engineering and Research until 2009.

Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to UNESCO, WMO, IDNDR, GWP, ICSU; and by co-operation with other water-related national and international organisations.

IAHR publishes two international scientific journals in collaboration with Taylor & Francis from its headquarters in Madrid, Spain – the Journal of Hydraulic Research, the Journal of River Basin Management and the Journal of Water Engineering and Research. It also publishes a quarterly magazine called Hydrolink, together with several ezines!.

The activities of IAHR are carried out by around one hundred volunteer elected officers from around the world supported by a small, full-time professional secretariat based in Madrid, Spain which is sponsored by CEDEX.[1]

The governing body of the Association is a council elected by member ballot every two years. The current President is Prof. Roger Falconer (UK). The current Vice Presidents are: Prof. Arthur Mynett (The Netherlands)(also Chair IAHR Hydraulics), Prof. Zhaoyin Wang (China)(also Chair IAHR Hydro-Environment), and Prof Marian Muste (USA)(also Chair of IAHR IPD). Dr. Ramon Gutierrez-Serret is Secretary General, and Dr. Christopher George is Executive Director.


IAHR publishes the Journal of Hydraulic Research[2] in partnership with Taylor & Francis.

IAHR publishes the INBO and in partnership with Taylor & Francis.[3]

IAHR publishes the International Journal of Applied Water Engineering and Research together with the World Council of Civil Engineers and in partnership with Taylor & Francis. [4]

The IAHR Asia Pacific Division publishes the Journal of Hydro-Environmental Research[5] in collaboration with the KWRA, Korean Water Resources Association and Elsevier
