Abstract

The activities of RIBAMOD have been timely, given developments in international policy and research. In particular, most governments accept the principle of sustainable development. The Dublin Conference in 1992, which focused specifically on Water and the Environment, indicated that water should be managed as a finite resource. In 1995, the Second Assessment Report of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change concluded that there is a discernible human influence on the global climate. Thus the second RIBAMOD Workshop was devoted to these themes which will be critical for the management of river basins into the next century. At the event a total of 33 invited, contributed and poster papers were presented and this volume collects together those papers submitted by the authors for publication. As will be seen from the contents of this volume the papers were fairly evenly divided between the twin themes of the event. The event attracted over 100 participants from 18 countries including 5 non-EU nations.
