Water is the fundamental building block for human civilization and economic development. Unfortunately as populations and economies mature, water demand increases while the availability of this valuable resource remains nearly constant. Shortages often stimulate water use conflicts, both in terms of quantity and quality. Therefore, scientific efforts should be directed toward supporting water resources planning, policy making and management through the development of strategies that consider the problem of developing multiple sources and managing numerous uses (municipal, industrial, irrigation) of water so that, over time, more efficient water resource supply systems and use patterns emerge; all while maintaining or enhancing surface water quality. The objective of the session would be to bring together knowledgeable speakers to discuss the progress made on issues pertaining to Integrated water resource management and water sustainability.
