Describes the primary elements in hydrologists' global research agenda, namely the validation and calibration of very large-scale climate models; participation in the prediction process itself, through global scale hydrological models; and the interpretation of change predictions in terms of hydrological and agrohydrological impacts. It then seeks to identify the hydrological skills appropriate to these tasks. Finally, the paper previews the proposed hydrology-related activities under the World Climate Research Programme and the International Geosphere Biosphere Programme, which will together command and demand relevant hydrological research expertise over the next decade. -from Author
