Florida Earth International Programs

Florida Earth currently has four  international programs

The UNESCO-IHE Florida Program

US-Netherlands Connection

Begun in 2005  the UNESCO-IHE Florida Earth Partnership brings the Hydroinformatics Department of UNESCO-IHE to the United States as a part of the curriculum of the largest water university in the world.  Students study South Florida's water management strategies and lessons learned, and take that knowledge back to their home countries to help create water solutions. The program has 220 alumni from 48 countries.

Florida Earth takes delegations of professionals to the Netherlands to explore Dutch expertise in water infrastructure and management, especially as it relates to sea-level rise adaptation and resilience. Visit the world's most advanced water infrastructure. The program is completely customizable to suit your organizations needs.


The Coastal Resilience Collaborative

The Comparative Water Law Course

Florida Earth's newest program is a global public-private partnership with a variety fo stakeholders who have a vested interest in sharing knowledge of solutions, both present and future, in coastal resilience, especially as it relates to sea-level rise and weather-driven events.  Known as the Coastal Resilience Collaborative, the founding partners are Florida Earth, UNESCO-IHE and the International Association for Hydro-environmental Engineering Research (IAHR).

Knowledge Exchange occurs in a variety of ways including online and in a series of convenings that happen in places around the globe that are dealing with coastal resilience issues.  All Collaborative events are certified as UNESCO-IHE
short-courses and will have other certifications as appropriate for attendees, such as CEU credits for engineers, planners and architects.  

The Comparative Water Law Course brings law students from St. Thomas University, Barry University and other Schools of Law to the Netherlands for a four day course on environmental/water law in the US and the Netherlands. The course focuses on the differences between European and US water law
