The Council of the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), a not-for-profit, global, independent members-based organisation of hydro-environment engineers, professionals, and researchers, established the IAHR Awards.
IAHR Awards seek to recognise excellence and the careers, papers, projects, and achievements of outstanding individuals, businesses, and organisations who have had a remarkable impact on hydro-environment science and engineering within several categories.
Nominating a candidate allows the sector to give recipients due recognition and to encourage excellence in others.
