Abstract: National progress reports on urban hydrology are presented. These reports include assessments of advances that have taken place in the past five years, what progress has been made and what research needs remain unfulfilled. Reports are presented from many European nations, India, Japan, Australia, Nigeria, Venezuela, and the United States and Canada. A status report on the International Hydrologic Programme (IHP) Project A.2.9, which aims to disseminate knowledge at hydrological processes in urban areas, is also presented. Summaries of research needs in urban hydrology are listed by country. The two areas most prevalent among these needs are (1) an improved urban runoff database and (2) development of technology transfer and information exchange programs.
