The IAHR Peru YPN was created as a network of young professionals and students in science and engineering who are motivated to conduct research and improve their skills in the areas of hydraulics, hydrology, water resources and their connection with other sciences such as climatology, ecology, geography, geology and related environmental sciences. The network has the support of the Peruvian Association of Hydraulic and Environmental Engineering (APIHA).
Our mission is to forge a group of highly committed professionals dedicated to promoting the involvement of young people in the integrated management of water resources in Peru and to proposing solutions to different issues where water both plays an essential role and is vulnerable. Our vision is to form a highly competent network capable of fostering future professionals who will contribute to different disciplines, policies, and decision-making in our country.
