IRHA was proud to take part in the 11th Novatech international conference, held at ISARA in Lyon from 3 to 7 July 2023. It was an opportunity for our team to meet experts from all over the world who are committed to promoting integrated and sustainable stormwater management in urban environments.
The conference was organised around 4 main themes: rainwater and techniques, rainwater and development, rainwater and impacts, rainwater and impacts, and rainwater and society.
We were able to attend various scientific talks and poster sessions, during which we were able to put our questions directly to the speakers. This event allowed us, the IRHA staff, to feel part of a movement, of a large community: that which promotes rainwater.
The contributions of the various speakers helped us to put our visions and approaches into perspective and to question our practices and ways of doing things.
This type of meeting is stimulating, and together we can look forward to a change in mentality around our shared resource: rainwater.
Thank you to the Graie for organising this event!
See you in 2026!
