Creating online community for water finance


As the IHE symposium is around the corner, it is time to prepare for your presentation and interaction/communication with other participants on the online symposium platform as follow:

By now, you as a registered participant should have received an email from capdevsymposium@capdev.un-ihe.org inviting you to the online platform of the symposium. You can follow the email to set up your account to allow your visibility and communication/interaction with other participants before/during/after the symposium, creating a professional network with shared common interests.

Under doment icon, you can find the current program for the track including your presentation time and order. To make the online presentation interesting, a Q&A by moderator is planned following each individual presentation to make live interaction while leading the discussion and thinking to the session topic. Please try to keep your presentation within 10 minutes to avoid losing audiences online.

You can also explore the online platform on which you can post questions, comments on other posts, upload documents (such as your presentation PDF or other interesting relevant materials) for discussion. You may also consider pre-record your presentation and post it under the track 5 on the platform, which is recommended as a backup for unexpected internet disruption in case. I attach the platform user guid under the document which is easy to follow from my experience.

Look forward to active/interesting track sessions with your contribution now/during/after the symposium.
