Event The Role of Hydrology in Water Resources Management

The purpose of the Symposium "The Role of Hydrology in Water Resources Management” is to discuss ways in which hydrologists can contribute most effectively to the planning and management of freshwater projects, including the efficient operation of existing systems faced with new socio-political situations. It will also address how water resource managers can capitalise on the hydrological expertise available to them. At the Symposium, hydrologists and water resource managers are invited to discuss these topics, taking into account the need to include more environmental, social and economic aspects in the planning and management of such projects, while keeping in mind the sustainability of water resource systems and related projects. As hydraulic and water management projects can have negative impacts on the environment, those with expertise in environmental matters will be particularly welcome.

During the symposium a special session is proposed on "New Statistical Tools in Hydrology" to launch the new Working Group STAHY (Statistics in Hydrology) recently created by IAHS. It has been therefore decided to organise just before the symposium from 13th – 14th October 2008 a special workshop on "New Statistical Tools in Hydrology". Informations on this event will be distributed separately.

The papers presented at the symposium will be published in the red book series of IAHS.

Deadline for abstract submission: December 31, 2007. Abstracts of the papers should be submitted to Kodwo Andah.
