Capacity Building in Hydrology and Water Resources Management in Germany, Austria and Switzerland


The UN World Water Development Report frequently points to the fact that numerous regions of the world will be affected by hydrologically based and economically induced water scarcity in future. In Asia, every sixth person is lacking access to safe water supply and sanitation, while every third person in Africa is suffering from such conditions. The hydrological conditions of individual regions cannot be enhanced. However, conveyance of competence and knowledge transfer can help achieve a sustainable use of water in the long run.

The Hydroforum informs on capacity development opportunities in hydrology and water resources management in Germany, Austria and Switzerland: universities, summer schools, e-learning modules, distance learning as well as international organisations dealing with water.
