Open Science publication in Hydrological Sciences Journal

First author, Christophe Cudennec, elaborates on his experience as Secretary General of IAHS, part of IUGG, member of ISC.

Along with COVID-19-related  developments, we place the discussion of open science in the context of long-term and accelerating challenges of the Anthropocene, within which the hydrological entry point provides a key aspect and illustration based on the connecting and interfacing dimensions of water in nature and societies; the increasing role of water in security issues; and the diversity of water-related contexts and epistemologies across the world.
