      National Symposium on "Water Resources Management in Changing Environment (WARMICE-2012)", February 8-9, 2012

      INTRODUCTION

      Water resources management requires a holistic and integrated view that considers the surface and groundwater together and also the direct human / indirect human needs. The sustainable management of water resources should base on an integrated approach linking development and protection of the natural environment, on the participation of all actors and concerned people and on the recognition of the economic and social value of water. We must promote the integration of all aspects of planning, management and protection of water resources by developing plans which aim to satisfy basic needs and to promote equitable and effective distribution of water resources, ecosystem protection and maintenance of the water cycle. Climate change, land use change and the hydrological variability of water's distribution and occurrence are natural driving forces that, when combined with the pressures from economic growth and major population change, make the water resources management a challenge. Water management plans should consider the best existing practices and the most advanced scientific breakthroughs.

      The trends in population growth and changes in environment will definitely affect the water availability in near future. Current management practices, rules and regulations may not be sufficient in protecting national interests and water based development activities. Keeping this in view, a national symposium is being organized by Indian Association of Hydrologists (IAH) at National Institute of Hydrology (NIH), Roorkee. The objectives of the IAH are to advance the knowledge of hydrology and related subjects and promote their applications, to publish relevant literature and latest developments in the field of hydrology and water resources through a journal on Hydrology and organization of symposium / workshops / training courses etc. This Symposium is being organized to foster objectives of the Association. The symposium's objective is to discuss the innovative ideas for the growth, protection and management of water resources. Researchers, Academicians, Engineers, Policy makers, Planners, Managers and Non-Governmental Orgainsations (NGOs) are invited during 8-9 Feb. 2012 to share their experiences and views on various aspects during the symposium.
