Chinese Delegation Visits DRBC

DRBC periodically receives requests to host delegations from other countries to discuss the commission and its programs. Over the years, representatives from China, South Korea, India, Australia, Uganda, and others have met with DRBC staff to learn about the value of managing water resources on a watershed basis, without regard to political boundaries.

Most recently, on January 18, 2013, a delegation from The Huaihe River Commission of the Ministry of Water Resources, People's Republic of China, visited DRBC. The Huaihe River Commission is one of seven such commissions that sits directly under the Ministry of Water Resources of the central government. This delegation's main interest area was flood management, and staff explained the commission's flood loss reduction program and related projects and activities.
