Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to invite you to submit your latest research findings to our upcoming edition of Water (IF 3.4, ISSN 2073-4441), entitled New Challenges in Hydrological Modelling and Water Resources Management ( Submissions should include studies that advance the current state of knowledge or critical reviews of existing models and practices.

Concern about water management is widespread. While the world population has tripled during the last century, in recent decades it has become increasingly evident that the water problems of a country, or of a basin for the purposes of management, can no longer be resolved via the exclusive participation of water professionals and special  administrations. Water issues increasingly connected by intertwined disciplines, to which we must add social, economic, environmental, legal and political considerations, at different regional, national or international scales. The topic is closely linked to water, territory, and production, which materializes with the elaboration of updated management models. These are useful for researchers and for the administration of water resources and can be considered as a public and strategic good. This Special Issue aims to collect recent advances on new challenges in hydrological modelling and water resources management. These include, but are not limited to, the following themes:

(I) Models of water management, conflicts and mediation in hydrographic basins; (II) new tools for water resources management based on hydro-economic models; (III) proposals for guidelines for a rational and sustainable management of water, land, energy and other related resource;  (IV) hydrological models in large basins and small catchments aimed at natural risk management; (V) water, energy and risk, advanced models for sustainable management.
