  • The second meeting of FLOBAR2 took place in Clermont-Ferrand, France on February 23rd and 24th, 2001. The meeting was timed to allow all partners to discuss their first year's work prior to writing the first annual report. Individual workpackage meetings took place, small groups working together with much enthusiasm and interest. Representatives of each workpackage then presented a resume of the previous year's work and projected work at a plenary session. The partner from IRS, Berlin took the opportunity to carry out some interactive work with partners grouped by country in order to discuss the institutional structures involved in each country's water resource management. A field trip to magnificent alluvial woodland areas on the Allier River, led by Jean-Luc Peiry rounded off an enjoyable and productive meeting.

    Minutes of the meeting are available on this website.
