Laurra Olmsted of UniWater Education attended the International Association of Hydrogeologists Congress 2012 in Niagara Falls, Ontario in September. This congress was the top of its kind with 900 delegates, 8 concurrent sessions of hydrogeology talks, and 160 posters.
Of particular note to UniWater’s activities was the opportunity to bring collaborators together for the upcoming program in Nigeria. Laurra was able to meet and discuss details of the program with collaborators Professor Aniekan Edet (Calabar University, Nigeria), Dr Mandy Meriano (University of Toronto), Professor Ken Howard (University of Toronto), Dr Segun Adelana (former IAH VP for sub-Saharan Africa), members of the Burdon Groundwater Network, and many other interested people. This meeting was very energizing and will assist in further communications as this program proceeds in development.
