Water Security is “the capacity of a population to safeguard access to adequate quantities of water of acceptable quality for sustaining human and ecosystem health on a watershed basis, and to ensure efficient protection of life and property against water related hazards – floods, landslides, land subsidence and droughts” (UNESCO-IHP 2012). 

The contributions arise from the 2014 Kovacs Colloquium held at UNESCO in Paris, which addressed the emergence and development of water security concepts. The invited keynote papers are accompanied by extended abstracts summarizing the posters presented.

Print copies of the volume are available to purchase from IAHS (info@iahs.co.uk) or via the bookshop. Abstracts and papers are also available online open access as PIAHS vol. 366.
