The JRBM Best Paper Award rewards biannually the best contribution to the International Journal of River Basin Management (JRBM) with strong original research dealing with significant basin management problems.

The JRBM Best Reviewer Award rewards biannually the most outstanding reviewer to the International Journal of River Basin Management (JRBM) in the two years preceding the River Flow Conference.
The International Journal of River Basin Management (JRBM) brings together research dedicated to all aspects of integrated river and floodplain management including catchments, wetlands, and estuarine systems with the aim of applying an integrated, cross-disciplinary approach to river basin management as recognised by the UN Watercourses Convention, World Water Vision, World Water Council and Global Water Partnership. To assist in this task, the International Association of Hydro-environment Engineering and Research and Taylor and Francis offer an annual award for the best contribution to JRBM.
Established in 2010, this IAHR award is supported by Taylor and Francis and was reactivated under the current rules in 2023.
The Awards recipients are selected by the JRBM Editor and the Editorial Board.
