Center in India offers training in water management



The Mahadevan International Centre for Water Resources Management in Hyderabad, India, conducted an interactive training course 7–17 December 2002, on the relationship of land surface hydrological processes to water resources management and extreme weather events. The course was designed to address the training needs of government personnel in Andhra Pradesh State working in the area of water resources management, particularly in the context of severe drought and over-exploitation of groundwater.

The Mahadevan Centre, modeled after the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy, serves as a clearinghouse for information pertaining to water sciences and technologies for the developing countries.
