  Information - HS15 Integrating methods for water resources management

Event Information
Integration is the key concept underlying the Water Framework Directive (WFD), THE Implementation of the WFD requires integration of the management of all water resources at the river basin scale, using tools developed by different disciplines to incorporate a wide range of measures, involving stakeholders and civil society in decision-making and sometimes transnational water management. New challenges include joint use of monitoring and modelling; understanding the interaction between ground and surface water, and linking water sciences and social sciences. Improved communication is required in the exchange of information and its uncertainties.

This session invites contributions on methods and ICT tools to support integrated assessment with appreciation of the uncertainties involved at different levels; on adaptive management methods to enable the joint use of monitoring and modelling (such as methods for optimal experimental design), and on developing integrated modelling and methods linking qualitative social research and quantitative hydrology.
