Yurtsever from IAEA is an Associate Member of the ICT Bureau and ICT is working in close collaboration with IAEA in planning some symposia, workshops, and eventual short courses. Additionally the IAEA Subprogramme F4 : Development and Management of Water Resources is coordinated with ICT representative on the Steering Committee of Operational Aspects of the Global Network Isotopes in Precipitation (GNIP); the report of the Meeting of Consultants in November 1995 is available. Person in charge : Chris Leidbundgut.
