Brochure on Water-PRESPA
The area of land that catches precipitation and drains it to a water body (river, lake) is called a basin. It can range in size from a few hectares to thousands of square kilometers. In a watershed the human activities on land and what happens to water and subsequently to the organisms that use water are interconnected. Thus, a basin-wide approach is the key to successful water management.
