Iran Partnership Opportunity Delegation

The week of October 1st, 2016, the Aspen Institute will lead a Partnership Opportunity Delegation (POD) to Iran, where participants will engage in meetings and conversations around water innovation and technology. Participants will also get a chance to meet with community leaders and gain a deep understanding of realities, challenges, and priorities in Iran.

The successful conclusion of the nuclear agreement with Iran, reached in July 2015, marks a critical turning point in relations for the United States, Europe and Iran, as well as a huge success for diplomacy.
