We would like to congratulate our colleague Kerstin Danert for receiving the Distinguished Associate Award 2017.
The International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH) Distinguished Associate Award is presented annually to a person who is not a groundwater professional but has made an outstanding contribution to the understanding, development, management and protection of groundwater resources internationally. This award is timely as Kerstin plans to concentrate her efforts and energy on her thematic work. She will continue to try to bring good groundwater resources management and groundwater development much closer to non-hydrogeologists. These are the practitioners in government and the private sector, as well as those that manage projects, political leaders and even the public. With this award, IAH, have given her an incredible boost for this challenging task. We wish her all the best for her future endeavours in her professional life within our team.
