10th International conference on river basin management including all aspects of hydrology, ecology, environmental management, flood plains and wetlands

0
River Basin Management includes all aspects of Hydrology, Ecology, Environmental Management, Flood Plains and Wetlands. Riverine systems are coming under increasing pressure due to anthropological and natural causes. Prominent amongst the problems affecting them is water scarcity and quality, this requires the development of improved methods for better river management. Changes in the landscape, use of the land and climate conditions lead to a continuous revaluation of river basin management objectives. This requires better measuring tools as well as the use of increasingly accurate computer software. Catastrophic events such as floods and associated landslides, erosion and sedimentation can have serious effects on life and property and also on the basin ecology. Frequently these problems are aggravated by the unforeseen consequences of man made changes in the river basin. This has led in recent years to work on river restoration and rehabilitation with various degrees of success.
