The IUKWC is calling on its members to submit proposals to lead webinars to showcase the breadth of high quality water research/practice that has been or is being conducted, and the impacts being realised through Indo-UK collaborations.  We would also like to invite proposals from members in either country who have high quality and high value research/practice that may not have been done through an Indo-UK collaboration, but that has been conducted either in the UK or India and that can be applied to the other country.
