River catchments and reservoirs play a central role in water security, food supply, flood risk management, hydropower generation and ecosystem services; however, they are now under increasing pressure from population growth, economic activities and changing climate means and extremes in many parts of the world. Adaptive management of river catchments and reservoirs require an in-depth understanding of the impacts of future uncertainties and thus develop robust, sustainable solutions to meet the needs from various stakeholders and the environment. To tackle the huge challenges in moving towards adaptive catchment management, there is a need to review the latest developments in cutting-edge knowledge, novel methodologies, innovative technologies and case studies that are relative to catchment management and reservoir operation.
In this Special Issue, we invite researchers and practitioners to present the advances in adaptive river catchment management and reservoir operation in the face of uncertainty. The topics include, but are not limited to, innovative management frameworks, river catchment modelling, inflow forecasting, climate change impact, multi-objective reservoir operation, water-energy-ecosystem nexus, risk and resilience analysis, intervention strategies, new technologies, decision support tools, policy analysis and case studies.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
