Watershed Management International Conference

Watersheds are the smallest hydrological and management units of river basins. As the point source for all of a basin’s water, biodiversity and ecosystem functions, they offer opportunities for improved livelihoods for the local population in the watersheds and river basins, but also suffer from a range of degradation challenges that are associated with human activities. It is therefore essential that watersheds are viewed as the basic unit in a river basin, from the local sub-basin through the national to the transboundary level, for biophysical, socioeconomic and institutional characterization. Despite this importance – not least the cumulative impacts from the many watersheds that constitute a river basin - watersheds are often neglected in river basin management.
