International Journal of River Basin Management | Vol. 19. Issue 1, 2021

The International Journal of River Basin Management (JRBM) plays a specific role in promoting a cross-sectorial approach encompassing all aspects of river and floodplain management, with a truly global perspective. The Journal is a response by the scientific and professional community to the World Water Vision and calls for an integrated approach to water resources management.

International Journal of River Basin Management | Vol. 19. Issue 1, 2021 Welcome to the first issue of the year. This is the 19th year for JRBM and one where we aim to continue publishing papers related to river basin management from both a social and a technical viewpoint. Papers in this issue address a range of topics from vehicle safety in floodwaters to management of irrigation systems to environmental concerns in Ethiopia. As the papers included in this issue have been sourced primarily from developing nations, these contributions highlight the communality of concerns about river basin management within developed and developing nations. Furthermore, the diversity of concerns in the management of river basins and catchments is illustrated by the variety of topics discussed in the papers.
