Description: This book contains 22 articles selected from over 200 oral and poster papers presented at The International Conference on Headwater Control held at Bergen, Norway, sixth of its kind (IHC6) belonging to a tradition established at the First International Conference in Prague in 1989 and developed through subsequent meetings at various places in Europe, Asia and Africa. The articles of this book are updated and peer reviewed for inclusion in this volume as proceedings of the IHC6 conference. The issues of water use and water management in different parts of Europe, Africa and Asia have been the central theme of most of the articles, which are divided into four sections: Sustainable watershed management; Catchment and strearnflow hydrology; Quality, pollution and management of water resources; and Monitoring and mitigation of disasters. The chapters incorporate the results of studies on integrated and sustainable watershed management, socio-economic issues, participatory processes in headwater management, control of water pollution, and monitoring and mitigation of various disasters in different mountain watersheds of Asia, Africa and Europe.
