NEW PERSPECIVES FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF WATER PROJECTS: MODELS AND APPLICATIONS FROM 8 TRANSBOUNDARY PROJECTS New!
Edited by Emeline Hassenforder, Pierre Daniel, Benjamin Noury
La Guilde des créateurs de Mondes
The increasing complexity in the water environment and in water projects strongly questions the effectiveness of traditional water management methods. This book suggests a new approach for the management of water projects that integrates the principles of sustainability, multidimensionality, measurability, comprehensiveness and unpredictability. These principles are presented in two different parts: firstly, through a scientific approach suggesting a new methodology for the management of water projects and secondly, through pragmatic examples of challenges and key success factors experienced in eight transboundary water projects. Its aim is to provide water managers and decision-makers with pragmatic approaches for tackling the complexity of water projects.
