Hydrolink is the primary magazine of the IAHR community and one of the highest-rated member benefits. It brings you the latest developments in the field of hydro-environment engineering and research through articles on projects, research, and new methods and tools of interest to the community. It also provides a platform for reporting on IAHR Conferences and news from our members, and offers a forum for exchanging information and spreading the word on topics and projects relevant to the community.
The online version of Hydrolink is open to non-members since 2021 as part of the efforts of the association to disseminate and share knowledge.

How can IAHR help address Africa´s water challenges? Discover how in this regional-focused issue.
Many parts of Africa face several water-related challenges including the lack of access to safe drinking water and sanitation, the availability of water for food production, protection from catastrophic floods, the sustainable management of its water resources, and the protection of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Despite the significant geographic and cultural differences between countries and especially between the two major regions of the continent, North Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa, there are several common factors that exacerbate the severity of these problems, such as population growth, climate change, urbanization, governance and transparency issues, political and military conflicts in parts of the continent, and national or international disputes over the allocation of limited water resources.
This issue of Hydrolink includes six articles primarily by authors from Africa that cover a range of topics that we hope will stimulate discussions and create opportunities for new collaborations.

- The imperative for establishing a Water Institute of the Greater Horn of Africa by Yonas Kinfu and Nebiyu Daniel Tiruneh
- Land dynamics and sustainable management of the Fincha River Basin, Ethiopia by Motuma Shiferaw Regasa, Dereje Adeba, Jerigna Nogusa and Michael Nones
- The effects of flooding and drought on clean water accesibility in Ethiopia by Tassew Mekuria
- Metropolization and stormwater management in Casablanca city, Morocco by Dalila Loudyi and Saâd Azzaoui
