In the wake of climate change and the vagaries of monsoon, it is taking toll on urban water supply, sanitation and storm water management. Flooding of cities has become chronic with the arrival of the monsoon in many of the Asian countries. In the developed countries too, coastal cities are facing with hurricanes, typhoons and other water logged problems. Urban water management is the key in the restoration of drainage, public infrastructure like airports and transportation networks after the storm has struck.

The urban watershed as a unit for managing the water, soil along with civil utilities including settlements is the emerging concept to man, manage and maintain all infra structure. The urban watershed concept also takes care of the pollutants in the environment integrating with available resources. Therefore, the hydrology and watershed management is an integral part not only in traditional rural water management but also in urban water management.

It is in this crucial context that the Centre for Water Resources of JNTU Hyderabad is proposing to organize the 5th International Conference on “Hydrology and Watershed Management” (ICHWAM) during Dec. 4-7, 2018 with a focal theme on “Urban Water Management for Sustainable Development”. The Centre for Water Resources has already successfully completed more than 33 years of its existence and has substantially contributed to academic and research pursuits by many of its faculty, scholars, students and alumni who are well-placed. This is a flagship conference and is a part of ICHWAM series of conferences organized during the years 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014. All the previous conferences attracted delegates from different parts of the Globe, which made it truly international. About 300 to 400 delegates are expected to participate in this event from national and international organizations.
