This issue of Water Resources Update contains papers from nine geographers in the field of water resources. The papers represent ideas communicated at a panel discussion held at the Association of American Geographers (AAG) national meeting in New Orleans in March 2003. The panel was sponsored by the Water Resources Specialty Group of the AAG and was inspired by the fact that the United Nations General Assembly declared 2003 the International Year of Fresh Water (IYFW) (A/RES/55/196, December 20, 2000). The goal of the IYFW has been to increase the awareness of the importance of freshwater. The panel discussion in New Orleans was directed toward that goal as is this issue of Update.
