HELP - Hydrology for the Environment, Life and Policy

HELP Provides a new approach to river basins integrated management through the creation of a water law framework , where policy experts, water managers and hydrologists work together on water-related issues.

Established in 1999, HELP is a cross-cutting programme component: it interacts with all five core themes of the programme by establishing a global network of basins to improve the links between hydrology and the needs of society. The vital importance of water in sustaining human and environmental health has been widely recognized by numerous national and international forums, but no programme has so far addressed key water resources management issues in the field and integrated them with policy and management.

HELP is designed to change this by creating a new approach to integrated basins management. It is a problem- and demand-driven initiative that addresses five key policy issues:

  • Water and climate
  • Water and food
  • Water quality and human health
  • Water and the environment
  • Water and conflict
