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…

Scenario development for decision-making in water resources planning and management
An interactive scenario-decision system can be built to support decision making process in water resource planning and management and indicates a promising new insight the technique may provide.
The traditional approach to urban water management is primarily based on a supply-oriented approach, where water follows a one-way path from supply to a single use, treatment and then discharged to

The Driving-Forces–Pressure–State–Impact–Response (DPSIR) indicator framework is used to identify key issues in catchment management in South Africa, and develop a set of indicators for evaluating catchments throughout the country.
Development of a web-based decision support system (DSS) for managing large international rivers
There is great potential for using the DSS to undertake systematic management of shared river basins, leading to effective conflict resolution and there are a number of challenges in full-scale implementation of the D SS approach, which can be resolved through further research and development.
