World Water Day 2014 and CC-WARE
The World Water Day on the 22nd of March was initiated at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro as an international day to celebrate freshwater. It should raise the general awareness on the importance of freshwater and advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.
The common feature of the research activities at the Institute of Water Management, Hydrology and Hydraulic Engineering is to better understand and to describe the complex relationships between the hydrological cycle and human water use. Furthermore, it is about the development of measures which preserve and protect the functioning of aquatic ecosystems. Methodological developments were, and usually are, closely tied to current applications related to Austrian, but also to international, water bodies and watersheds.
