RIWE RIWE Regional Institute of Water Education

Discussions between RIWE partners, which eventually led to its establishment in January 2017, started in early 2016. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between University of Tehran, IHE-Delft (formerly known as UNESC-IHE), UNESCO Tehran Cluster Office, and Iran Ministry of Energy stating the goals and the partner institutes which collaborated in establishment of RIWE.

RIWE Statute was signed on March 11, 2017 by Mr. Hamid Chitchian, Minister of Energy of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Professor Mahmoud Nili Ahmadabadi, President of the University of Tehran. The statute has clearly spelled out the responsibilities of each of the partner institutes in academic and administrative activities of RIWE.
