					Background and Objectives
     The 5th International Symposium on Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) is                            First Announcement and Call for Abstracts/Papers
one of regular symposia organized by the International Commission on Water Resources
Systems (ICWRS) of IAHS, focusing on the topic ‘Water Resources Sustainability in a
Changing Environment’. The objective is to bring together experts from different disciplines to
present research results on describing hydrological cycle in a changing environment and            5th International Symposium on Integrated Water Resources Management
discriminating among impacts caused by various factors, to exchange experiences about                                                        and
quantitative methodology for water resources assessment in a changing environment and
