The UNESCO-ISI Online Training Workshop on Sediment Transport Measurement and Monitoring took place from July 5-9, 2021, and represents a key initiative of the International Sediment Initiative (ISI) of UNESCO for 2021. It meets the objectives of the new strategy of ISI, which in turn is a contribution to the 8th phase of the IHP (2014-2021), focuses on “Water security: responses to local, regional and global challenges”, and addresses the wide-ranging environmental, social and economic impacts of erosion, sediment transport and sedimentation processes. Measurement and monitoring of sediment transport are of critical importance for managing and mitigating these impacts.

The Online Training Workshop is sponsored by UNESCO-IHP, and Ministry of Water Resources, P.R. China; organized by UNESCO-IHP International Sediment Initiative (ISI), International Research and Training Center on Erosion and Sedimentation (IRTCES), China Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research (IWHR), and UNESCO Beijing Office; and co-sponsored by World Association for Sedimentation and Erosion Research (WASER), International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), and Jingjiang Bureau of Hydrology and Water Resources Survey. The workshop has been designed for, and is open to, young engineers, scientists and managers, who are based in developing countries and working in fields such as river basin/reservoir management, water and soil conservation, sediment management and control etc. and who wish to improve their knowledge and understanding of fluvial sediment measurement and monitoring.

Total 214 participants from 61 countries and regions, including the lecturers and registered trainee participants, attended the workshop, and among which 2/5 are females. Over 870 persons including unregistered participants joined in the online training.
