Register _now _jan 20_600



The FIG Working Week 2020 in Amsterdam is addressing the following overall theme:

Smart Surveyors for Land and Water Management

This theme is relevant both for the Netherlands and internationally in a world where drinking water is a scarce resource, waste water needs to be recycled rather than seen as waste, where the sea needs to be better mapped and managed, where land resources need to be protected against sea-level rise, and where land-based fresh water habitats are threatened.

The technical programme will offer you a varied selection of sessions and presentations within all fields of surveying that are covered by the 10 FIG Commissions. Institutional Partners of the Working Week are UN-GGIM, UN-Habitat/GLTN and FAO.
