Introduction The Water Professionals’ Day Symposium was initiated on October 04, 2003 to promote water resources research, facilitate dissemination of research information and to encourage dialogue among stakeholders in the water sector in Sri Lanka. Subsequently, symposia for Water Professionals were organized at Peradeniya every year on October 01. It was evident that these symposia have been an incentive to develop innovative and multidisciplinary research in water resources and related sectors in Sri Lanka. The fate of water resources in a changing climate, managing sectoral demand for water, sustenance of water quality, treatment and reuse of waste water, health and sanitation issues related to water resources utilization and management, water rights & conflicts and policies & regulations related to water have been the major themes focused on research presentations and discussions in the past Water Professionals’ Day events. Further, the need for better techniques and management strategies for our water resources have been highlighted throughout the symposia. In the proceedings of the symposia, a considerable collection of water resources related literature has been compiled and published for the benefit of a wider group of readers. The opportunities provided at the symposium for budding water professionals to meet the experts in the sector have been highly appreciated by the students and young professionals in this sector. The Geo-Informatics too play a significant role in water resources conservation and management. The use of Geo-Informatics in the water sector has been found in abundance. Dynamic spatial data required for water resources planning and management are provided from remote sensing sources. Location information for hydraulic and other water management structures can be conveniently collected and updated using GPS.

A wide range of spatial data analysis required for the water sector from basin scale to plot level can be achieved using Geographical Information Systems. In short, the application dimensions of Geo-Informatics technologies in the water sector are immense. In this background, the Geo-Informatics Society of Sri Lanka together with Cap-Net Lanka (Capacity Building Network for Integrated Water Resources Management) has taken the initiative to organize the Seventh Water Professionals’ Day Symposium on October 01, 2009. University academics, professionals of several research institutes and non-governmental organizations join hands with the GISSL and Cap-Net Lanka to support this activity. This symposium will enable researchers and professionals in the water sector to have a fruitful discussion on ongoing research and management activities with respect to the water resources research of the nation and to bring proposals on efficient and sustainable utilization of water resources for continued prosperity in the water sector. The papers presented will be published in the Water Professionals’ Day proceedings which will be released at the symposium.

Date: October 01, 2009 Venue: Professor R.R. Appaturai Auditorium of the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Peradeniya.
