Comprehensive Water Management Scenarios for Strategic Planning

  title={Comprehensive Water Management Scenarios for Strategic Planning},
  author={E. Manoli and Pipina Katsiardi and George Arampatzis and D. Assimacopoulos},
The assessment of the applicability and suitability of potential measures and instruments is crucial in the strategic planning of water resources management. This paper presents a methodology founded on scenario analysis for assessing potentially applicable water management options in a regional context with respect to their efficiency, extent of application, cost and environmental impact. Formulation, analysis and evaluation of the different scenarios are performed through a developed GIS…
