This brochure provides an overview of the likely effects of global change (population growth, climate change and related extreme precipitation and floods, urbanization, expansion of infrastructure, migration, land conversion and pollution) on water resources and the International Hydrology Programme's response to these challenges.

Education systems in many of the world's poorest countries are now experiencing the aftershock of the global economic downturn. The 2010 Education for All Global Monitoring Report, argues that the crisis could create a lost generation of children whose life chances will have been irreparably damaged by a failure to protect their right to education.

This publication comprises the proceedings of the UNESCO Chair Workshop on "International Strategy for Sustainable Groundwater Management: Transboundary Aquifers and Integrated Watershed Management" held on 6 October 2009 at the Laboratory of Advanced Research A, University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba City, Japan in conjunction with the JSPS-DGHE Joint Research Project Meeting.

The carbon cycle is closely linked to the climate system and is influenced by the growing human population and associated demands for resources, especially for fossil-fuel energy and land. The rate of change in atmospheric CO2 reflects the balance
between carbon emissions from human activities and the dynamics
of a number of terrestrial and ocean processes that remove

This latest UNESCO publication explores how to maximize the use of groundwater and rainwater for development and climate change adaptation in an approach called 3R that refers to Recharge, Retention & Reuse.

This volume constitutes the proceedings of the 12th Biennial Conference of the Euromediterranean Network of Representative and Experimental Basins (ERB) held in Krakow, Poland, from 18-20 September 2008.

This third edition of the UN World Water Development Report emphasizes the role of water in development and economic growth. Warns that increase in population and climate change are depleting the planet

Implementing Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) at the river basin level is an essential element to managing water resources more sustainably, leading to long-term social, economic and environmental benefits.

Climate, social and economic conditions, markets, consumer values and technology are only a few of the areas of change that the World Water Development Report (WWDR3) describes and discusses in detail.

In draught prone area, there are two critical factors: water and soil. So in such areas main objective is to conserve the soil and conserve water. Once soil and water conserved, vegetative growth sustain easily. For the same to satisfy this objective economically and efficiently, Refilled Continuous Contour Trenching (RCCT)Technology is the solution for sustainable watershed development.
