Summary (200 word max.)IANAS operates a Water Program that runs in coordination with the IAP Water Program. The present proposal aims the implementation of the actions of the IANAS Water Program in 2010. The IANAS Water Program plans to hold the 5th Meeting of its National Focal Points in Argentina in late 2010, in coordination with the 7th Biennial Forum of the Rosenberg International Forum on Water Policy, an activity of the University of California. Discussions at these two meetings will focus on the water problems of the Americas and their solutions. This activity has been considered of the upmost relevance by the IANAS Executive Committee in its last meeting held in California past March. The Organization of the American States (OAS) has been approached and demonstrated its interest to participate and support this joint meeting, which will also be supported by the government of Argentina. Resulting from this process, the program will prepare a volume on "Water Management in the Americas: A Strategic View".
