One of the main objectives of the IIASA Water Resources Project is to improve knowledge of hydrologic and water resource processes within changing environmental situations, and to develop methods needed for relating global climate variability and change to regional water resources. The study is implemented in cooperation with a number of international organisations, including the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO), Unesco, and the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS).

In the framework of the World Climate Program a meeting was convened by IIASA in cooperation with the Global Runoff Data Centre (Koblenz) to discuss and develop plans for a Pilot Project to Produce Gridded Estimates of Surface Runoff over Selected Regions of the World. Such estimates are needed for transferring catchment-based hydrological data into grid-based data in order to use them for large-scale hydrological modeling and validating atmospheric global circulation models.

This collaborative paper presents the methodological and organisational backgrounds of the Project, which will involve research institutions from Austria, Czechoslovakia, the Federal Republic of Germany, Hungary, Poland and Switzerland.
