  • Environmental and Water Resources Institute (EWRI), American Society of Civil Engineering (ASCE)

      (http://www.asce.org/environmental-and-water-resources-engineering/environmental-and-water-resources-institute/)

Created in 1999, the Environmental & Water Resources Institute (EWRI) is a civil engineering specialty institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the country's oldest national engineering society. EWRI services are designed to complement ASCE's traditional civil engineering base and to attract new categories of members (non-civil engineer allied professionals) who seek to enhane their professional and technical development. 
EWRI was formed in keeping with the Strategic Plan of ASCE to provide improved and comprehensive products and services to a variety of engineering teams working in technical, educational, and professional areas. Former ASCE Technical Division enrollees (Environmental Engineering, Water Resources Engineering, Water Resources Planning and Management - as well as the Water and Environmental Standards Council), form EWRI's approximately 26,000 person membership base. The former Divisions and Council have a long and successful record of performance. EWRI expands on the strong core of products and services originated by these members.

The EWRI's vision is to be a recognized worldwide leader within ASCE for the integration of the technical expertise and public policy into the planning, design, construction and operation of environmentally sound and sustainable infrastructure impacting air, land, and water resources.

  • State Key Laboratory of Water Resources and Hydropower Engineering Science, Wuhan University      

(http://en.waterlab.whu.edu.cn/About_Us/Overview.htm)

The State Key Laboratory of Water Resources and Hydropower Engineering Science was approved by Ministry of Science and Technology of China in the year of 2003 to be established in Wuhan University. The laboratory is under the direct administration of Wuhan University and operates independently, with an aim to create an innovation platform for scientific research and engineering application in the fields of water resources and hydropower engineering. Currently, the laboratory occupies a total building area of 13,000 m2 and owns the fixed assets worth 80 million RMB. With a large number of instruments and experimental systems equipped and developed for various kinds of complex and comprehensive scientific researches, the laboratory has now become the one of leading laboratories of the same kind in China and abroad.
The laboratory consists of five research sections, i.e. hydrology and water resources, agricultural irrigation, river engineering, hydraulic structure, and hydropower station operation and management. The section directors are responsible for managing the research groups or programs. The research positions are divided into the tenure type and the contract type and all are open for application. The laboratory staff currently consists of 57 persons, including 44 professors, 5 associate professors, 5 technicians, and 3 administration staff. Professor Zhi MAO is also a member of Chinese Academy of Engineering.
The laboratory has made the outstanding achievements in the following research fields: nonlinear flood forecasting; sustainable management of water resources; water-saving irrigation; management and control of effluent irrigation; inter-basin water transfer; river sedimentation; hydropower resources exploitation; optimal design of hydropower station; optimal construction of hydropower project; transient process of hydropower stations, and so on.
Currently Professor Wenbo LU serves as the laboratory director. The laboratory's academic committee consists of 13 famous scholars and experts, with Professor Hao WANG, also a member of Chinese Academy of Engineering, elected as the chairman of the academic committee.

CAWRA is a nonprofit, nonpolitical organization. It has been established since 1993. The CAWRA is aiming to serve the water-resources community by providing information, promoting information/ technology exchanges and collaborations, and, therefore, advancing technology and engineering as well as management concerning water resources in the geographic regions of China and the profession of CAWRA members. 

  • Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC)

      (http://www.nsfc.gov.cn/)

NSFC was founded in February 1986 with the approval of the State Council. It is an institution for the management of the National Natural Science Fund, aimed at promoting and financing basic research and applied research in China.

  • International Water Resources Association (IWRA)

      (http://www.iwra.org/index.php/)

IWRA is a non-profit, non-governmental, educational organisation established in 1971 . It provides a global, knowledge based, forum for bridging disciplines and geographies by connecting professionals, students, individuals, corporations and  institutions who are concerned with the sustainable use of the world’s water resources.

  •  International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR)

      (http://www.iahr.org/)

The International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydro-informatics and continuing education and training. IAHR stimulates and promotes both research and it's application, and by so doing strives to contribute to sustainable development, the optimisation of world water resources management and industrial flow processes. IAHR accomplishes its goals by a wide variety of member activities including: working groups, research agenda, congresses, specialty conferences, workshops and short courses; Journals, Monographs and Proceedings; by involvement in international programmes such as UNESCO, WMO, IDNDR, GWP, ICSU, and by co-operation with other water-related (inter)national organisations.

  • US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

      (https://www.epa.gov)

Born in the wake of elevated concern about environmental pollution, EPA was established on December 2, 1970 to consolidate in one agency a variety of federal research, monitoring, standard-setting and enforcement activities to ensure environmental protection. Since its inception, EPA has been working for a cleaner, healthier environment for the American people.

  •  Changjiang River Water Resources Commission

     (http://www.cjw.gov.cn/)

The Changjiang Water Resources Commission (CWRC) is a river basin authority dispatched by the Ministry of Water Resources of the People's Republic of China to exercise water administrative functions in the Yangtze River Basin and other river basins of southwestern China (west to and inclusive of the Lancang River). As the legacy of the former Yangtze River Water Resources Commission that existed before founding of the People’s Republic of China, the CWRC was re-established in February 1950 with its headquarters seated in Wuhan. In accordance with national legislature and the authorization from the Ministry of Water Resources, the CWRC is responsible for water administration and law enforcement, integrated water resources management (including water conserving, allocation and protection), basin planning, flood control and drought relief, river course management, key hydraulic project construction and management, river sand extraction management, soil conservation, hydrology, scientific research as well as operation and stewardship of State owned assets.
