Human activities have disrupted the natural hydrological and ecological regimes. Besides, the societal and environmental challenges linked to water-related issues are staggering in many cases. Moreover the vulnerability of societies have increased and the number of fatalities as well as the economic damages caused by water-related disasters, such as floods, droughts and landslides is dramatically increasing worldwide.
