The Large African River Basins flow through several climate zones. They drain huge volumes of freshwater, and play a major role in economic and social development of the countries crossed. Because of their size, they raise questioning on both water and soil resource management for large floodplains and wetlands, for coastal areas or for hilly and mountainous areas.

So their functionning is the core of land use planning policies. Of course, hydrological observation networks already provide consistent data, that deserve to be confronted with multidisciplinary approaches to an integrated overview of their hydrobiogeochemical and hydrosedimentary behavior.

This will ensure better prevention and better early warning of hydrological and ecological risks, in order to improve the resilience of communities and environment.

 The second International Conference on African Large River Basin Hydrology will point on three issues:

(1) re-engage the importance of hydrometric monitoring for the establishment of regional cross-border data banks;

(2) crossing perspectives and approaches of hydrologists with natural resource managers between rural engineering and ecological engineering;

(3) address scaling issues via the distributed conceptual modeling.

 Besides scientific communcations during three days, the conference will be accompanied by two major workshops:

- one on standards of hydrological indicators in Africa,

- the other for a training session in the SWAT modeling.
