[SS-RP-05]
National Hydrological Networks in Continental-Sized Countries - Past, Present and Future: Problems and Perspectives
This session highlights a discussion conducted by leaders from national water institutions responsible for the operation of hydrometeorological monitoring networks of countries of continental dimensions. 
The focus will be an evaluation of the combined experience and the operational complexity in producing high-quality hydro-meteorological data reliably, timely, for the most diverse applications; to the challenges of producing useful information for a rapidly-changing socio-economic population; and the future challenges and opportunities with climate change and the physical changes on the world.
