The Working Group on Levees and Flood Defences under the European Club of ICOLD (EUCOLD WG LFD) will have a 2-day program organized for you consisting of meetings, presentations and workshops.

Monday September 30th In the morning the Working Group meeting will be held. Besides informing and discussing about on-ongoing and planned activities, attendees can pitch state-of-the-art levee related projects taking place in their countries. In the afternoon a special session on the use of fibre optics for monitoring levee and dam behavior will take place. Up to five real-life cases from the levee and dam community will be presented focusing on the usability of outcomes and lessons learned to do this at home.

On Tuesday October 1st we invite you to join a whole day workshop considering similarities and differences between dams and levees. Through a series of steps, input will be provided to the dam/levee comparison report which will be published by the ICOLD Technical Committee on Levees.
