This is principally achieved in the description of the highly nonlinear processes of infiltration, ponding, and redistribution of water in soil that play key roles as interfaces of surface and groundwater components of the hydrologic cycle. This method has proved to be particularly suitable when short records of data area available. Dazu zählen Wasserrecht, nationale und internationale Gewässerschutzpolitik, öffentliche und private Wasserversorgung, Abwasserbeseitigung, grenzüberschreitende Gewässerbewirtschaftung, Informationspolitik in der Wasserwirtschaft etc. The two-phase infiltration theory of Morel-Seytoux is used in the model and the analysis was done about the probabilistic distributions of infiltration rates and ponding times. The selection of countries, and the specific topics addressed in each country and at an European level are presented and justified.
Two Portuguese river basins Corgo River at Ermida and Tera Creek at Pavia are used for illustration. New concepts, principles, and mechanisms are being developed to help incorporate all the complexity of environmental concerns in transboundary river management. The provision of structural flood defences can have a major impact on the environment and there has been an expression of concern by many members of the public for the degradation of river corridors. These models were applied in the Livramento catchment with very good results. But yet, among all this diversity, there aer some common features that are present in virtually all cases. Spatial variability is taken into consideration and phenomena such as the move ment of a storm over the watershed can be considered.
The project is designed to develop data sets and computational systems within a number of project modules. Extreme conditions trigger new approaches. Mediterranean environments raise very specific problems for water resources management. . Drought problems must be analyzed and solved at a regional level.
In this paper concepts and methods to characterize droughts as regional processes are presented. The generated series is used to perform the study of regional droughts from an engineering risk point of view. Shared difficulties are an incentive for exchanging information and jointly searching for new solutions that may be useful not only in the Mediterranean but also elsewhere. Their impacts must be equated in terms of natural environments and also in the context of engineering risk and reliability of man made water environments.

To obtain better environment and, at the same time, better and comparable data on this environment, the European Union issued a number of legal instruments directives and council and commission decisions.
In the filtering process physical feasibility is preferred to filter optimality; therefore, the filter results are constrained to merge values that are always physically acceptable. River flow is the drought determinant factor chosen and a river basin in southern Portugal is used as case study. Appropriate techniques for interfacing with the public are necessary to support this upsurge of public involvement. Correia, in addition to serving as an Advanced Research Workshop organizer and workgroup chairman, presented an overview of the evolution of urban integrated water management in Portugal. A framework for the comprehensive evaluation of flood hazard management policies is also addressed in this article. It is important to make an ex-post evaluation of these types of measures in areas where they have been adopted. The proposed methodology is tentatively and successfully applied to the river Sado basin located in southern Portugal.
The characteristics of the model make it very useful in studying the impact of spatial variability of parameters in catchment response. These include developing regional scale computer programs for hazard and vulnerability analysis, investigating the full flood impacts in different European countries, and analysing the effectiveness of flood warning systems. This comprehensive approach to flood problems is more than an attitude or a philosophical starting point. Flood frequency and risk analysis play a crucial role in the design of many hydraulic structures and water resources systems. Contrary to other natural catastrophes, droughts are difficult to define, to identify and to characterize.
In any case, to be useful, information must be relevant to the end to be achieved, complete and easily understood. The calibration version has the purpose of allowing for a semi-automatic iterative calibration of the parameters of the model. Further modules evaluate the interface between the public and flood alleviation schemes, modelling the safety aspects of such schemes in different countries, and the impacts that sea level rise might have on required rates of infrastructure investment.

Flood risk analysis plays a crucial role in the design of many hydraulic structures and water resources systems.
For the water budgets, precipitation and evapotranspiration are considered. In this context, it is becoming a commonly accepted practice by central or local governments to submit flood management plans to public discussion. In this paper these techniques are presented and their merits are discussed. It is as though some basic functions or roles need to be guaranteed in spite of the myriad of ways that are adopted to achieve them. Drought studies must focus not only on the hydrological characterization of the phenomena but also formulate the results in terms of engineering risk.
Drought consequences can be devastating but never occur in short periods of time, as with other major natural disasters, namely floods, earthquakes and cyclones. Thirty-three years of monthly data are used to calibrate the parameters of this model. The model enabled the overall benefit associated with each option to be appraised, and extensive sensitivity analyses to be performed. The two directions along which the research effort has been conducted, leading to the preparation of the Vertical and the Horizontal Reports, are shortly discussed. Even among the 15 Member States of the European Union, there are not two having the same institutional set-up for managing their water resources.

This presentation was not part of the pre-workshop paper preparation process, but as it was found to be helpful to all workshop participants is included in brief form for completeness of the record.
Even among the 15 Member States of the European Union, there are not two having the same institutional set-up for managing their water resources. The screening of the historic truncated time series and the risk analysis of the outputs from a stochastic drought model were the validation criteria used. The continuous use and improvement of a rationale for the stochastic characterization of regional droughts led the authors to determine how short the characterization time unit can be in order to provide a better description of such drought characteristics as duration, magnitude and severity in a system analysis context without losing the macroview of the drought phenomenon given by an annual characterization. The distribution functions best fitting the data were derived for each time unit in order to estimate the percentiles to be used as truncation levels. There is an established tradition in Europe of bilateral and multilateral agreements and conventions on international water problems.
