As water is essential to life on Earth and it also acts as an agent to influence environments, knowledge of hydrologic science is often needed to seek out solutions to many practical problems. As such, researches of hydrologic science have expanded their target not only within Japan but also in many parts of the world. Unfortunately, international cooperation through such activities has not always been successful, particularly in areas outside researches such as technology transfer and capacity development, even though such contributions to society at local, national and international levels are desirable and have even been required particularly in recent years. It is argued that lack of our experience and knowledge in such areas is one of the causes that prevent our efficient involvement and achievement in international cooperation. Since this article is mainly based on personal experiences and on limited data and statistics, a more thorough investigation is clearly needed.
