Hydrological Sciences and Water Security: Past, Present and Future

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). Thus, Water Security addresses the threats posed by floods, droughts and pollution spills to human societies, and also the impacts of inadequate supplies of water, both in quantity and quality, for food and energy production, for domestic and industrial purposes, and for sustaining ecosystem productivity.

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 here. Abstracts and papers are available online open access as Volume 366 of PIAHS (Proceedings of IAHS) at:
