Riversymposium 2002, the 5th international river management symposium, again provided a forum for world authorities on river management issues to come together to address scientific research, engineering practice and policy development. There is a strong contribution from Australasia, but with renowned authors from America, Europe and Asia, there is much that will prove highly valuable to readers anywhere around the world. From the wide-ranging and vibrant programme 28 articles have been selected for these proceedings. They have been grouped under the following headings: dams; tropical rivers; environmental flows; land use impacts; indigenous river management; institutional arrangements; community involvement in river management; irrigation; and climate change. Riversymposium is unique in its holistic approach to river management, and these proceedings provide a refreshing and rich selection of papers on the issues that matter in river management. Ecologists, engineers, environmentalists, regulators and policy-makers interested in river management will find these proceedings an essential reference and a source of new insights.
