The presentation will attempt to identify the technical and social challenges that need to be addressed to establish sustainable water development and management practices for the future. It will also look into the catchment-scale hydrological impacts of various global change drivers, such as climatic variability and change as well as variations in population patterns and related changes, such as land-use change and migration from rural to urban areas. Prof. Sz�ll�si-Nagy will argue that design methodologies and institutional policies developed under the hypothesis of stationary hydrological processes need to be revisited and updated.
