International Journal of River Basin Management | Vol. 19. Issue 2, 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 second issue of the year. During this 19th year of JRBM, we aim to continue publishing papers related to river basin management from both a social and a technical viewpoint. Papers in this issue focus on a variety of water quality related issues ranging from water quality indicators, statistical analyses of water quality parameters, and ecological aspects with an emphasis on fish habitats. Many developing countries have river basins with water quality issues, and hence, the papers in this issue discuss water quality issues in developing countries across the globe; papers are presented from Asia, the Americas, and Africa highlighting the international vision of JRBM.
