Indigenous WM is acknowledged by an Indigenous institution. TWM's
expertise in managing security and
sustainability in Water Resources
is gradually being recognized. At least by Indigenous nations.

Dear Mr. Porter,
We are pleased to announce and invite you to participate at the international conference on "Security & Sustainability in Water Resources" to be held from September 6-9, 2004 in Kathmandu, Nepal. This conference is organized by the Center for Sustainability, Environment, Equity and Partnership (SEEP); a non-profit NGO based in Kathmandu, Nepal and is supported by His Majesty's Government of Nepal.
The inequitable access of the natural resources has increasingly led and linked to poverty, governance and conflict. Hence, it becomes imperative for such conference to take place for present and future researchers, leaders, managers, decision-makers and influencers to become better informed on the issues and solution options.
We are anticipating your participation to make the conference more dynamic and output oriented through your professional expertise to meet the present day need for the better tomorrow. This conference seeks to explore working relationship among the participants to create an ambience for exchange and cooperation of ideas and resources. The conference is divided into groups of technical, managerial and policy making. Each group will synthesize the outcome of the topics discussed for the national and international relevance to link knowledge and experience to each of the working groups.
There are also opportunities for sponsors to this conference. [...]
Please feel free to contact us through e-mail for any suggestions or queries you may have. The conference details are available on the website www.seepwater.org.
