January 2012: Memorandum of Understanding

ICIMOD and the University of South Bohemia, located in Ceske Budejovice in the Czech Republic, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in January on cooperation in areas of climate change and impacts on water resources. The collaboration will include joint research projects, exchange of scientists and researchers, and capacity building and training. The MOU is a follow up to the high level Czech delegation visit to ICIMOD in November 2011. The Czech delegation that visited ICIMOD was very impressed by ICIMOD and its activities and encouraged establishment of a more formal collaboration between ICIMOD and the Czech Water Consortium.
