The work described in this report is part of a collaboration project between Corporación Autónoma Regional del Cauca (CVC), Colombia, and the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI)

CVC is an entity, whose main objective is to promote the economic and social development of the upper Cauca basin in the provinces of Cauca and Valle as well as of part of the Colombian Pacific region. One specific objective is to regulate the river, Rio Cauca, for flood control, hydropower generation and for pollution alleviation.

The collaboration project deals with the application of the conceptual HBV model to the upper Rio Cauca. The work was started in February 1987 and completed in June 1988. The project was financially supported by the Swedish Agency for Technical and Economic Cooperation (BITS).
