Hayde will be responsible for maintaining contacts and initiating cooperation between the National Committees of ICID member countries in Europe.

"I am very much honoured to take on this position," Hayde explains. "I certainly believe that the work at ICID complements my work at UNESCO-IHE. Among others ICID puts such high emphasis on the involvement of young professionals in their activities and young water professionals are precisely what UNESCO-IHE produces. Several Masters and PhD students are already involved in our joint projects, such as the World History of Water Management Short Course held at UNESCO-IHE. In this new position I will work on closer cooperation between UNESCO-IHE and ICID. With respect to this I am certainly open to new ideas, initiatives from the academic and management side of UNESCO-IHE to develop activities to the benefit of UNESCO-IHE," Hayde adds.

Keep your eye out for the April/May issue of UPDATE magazine where you can read a longer interview with Dr. László Hayde.
