  • Pulp & Paper Water Treatment - A look at optimizing water resource management

    Application Case Study (Pulp/Paper Operations) The pulp and paper industry has traditionally been a consumer of large amounts of fresh water and power. Recently, increased focus has been given to the optimized efficiency of paper mills and to the environmental sustainability footprint of the industry. Therefore, water resource management has become a more critical factor ...

  • Water resources management

    Managing regional or national water resources demands the integration of patterns and processes of both natural and social systems. This is essential to achieve the optimum interaction of man and nature since every aspect of water use and disposal impinges on ecosystems to a greater or lesser extent. Sustainability is the key issue: how can sustainable yields by abstraction from rivers, ...

  • Water resources and management in Tunisia

    This paper focuses on the work done through the INRGREF to collect and analyse available information on water resources in Tunisia. It presents the quantity and quality of surface and groundwater resources data. Water resources in Tunisia are characterised by scarcity and a pronounced irregularity. Tunisia has been able to develop a complex and diverse water infrastructure allowing the country to ...

  • Better Resources Management - Resources Management

    Water is the primary medium through which climate change will impact people, ecosystems and economies. Water resources management should therefore be an early focus for adaptation to climate change. It does not hold all of the answers to adaptation; a broad range of responses will be needed. But water is both part of the problem and an important part of the solution. It is a good place to start. ...

  • Integrated modeling on water resource management

    World is facing a water crisis and increasing in recent years. It is necessary to understand the water system from source to sink and about 10% of total annual runoff is being used. Agriculture is found largest direct user of water. Asia is consuming about 23%, highest percentage of available water resources. Various steps for efficient water resources management are discussed. Decision support ...


  • THE PATHWAY TO SUSTAINABLE RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

    A paradigm shift is occurring in the way government and businesses are tackling resource management. Up until 10 years ago resource management was viewed simply as a cost saving opportunity and was approached as a technical project usually starting with a resource efficiency audit. Energy was the first to be tackled, due to its relatively high cost, compared with water and solid waste. The ...

  • In the image of the market: the Chilean model of water resources management

    Chile's free-market Water Code turned 20 years old in October 2001. This anniversary was an important milestone for both Chilean and international debates about water policy, because Chile has become the world's leading example of the free-market approach to water law and economics and water resources management - the textbook case of treating water rights, not merely as private property, but ...

  • Sustainable water resource management: the science behind the scene

    Working in the field of research is—in very many respects—challenging and intriguing. In fact, we as researchers are eager to challenge the unknown although we never can reach the ultimate truth. The most we can hope to accomplish is to draw, on the basis of new evidence and understanding, a model of the world that brings us closer to reality than any previous model. Progress along this road is ...

  • Development of institutional frameworks for the management of transboundary water resources

    This paper presents a comparative analysis of institutions (treaties, agreements) for the management of transboundary water resources. The nine river basins investigated are divided according to their level of cooperation and commitment to three categories the highly committed (Colorado, Niger, Rio Grande and Senegal) the least cooperative (Ganges-Brahmaputra and Indus); and the middle level of ...

  • Integrated Water Resources Management (GWP, 2000)

    The paper is divided into two main parts. The first part puts forward a strong case for applying IWRM globally and defines the IWRM concept and process. The second part provides additional advice and guidance on how IWRM could be implemented in different conditions. ...

  • Integrating water resources management in eco-hydrological modelling

    In this paper the integration of water resources management with regard to reservoir management in an eco-hydrological model is described. The model was designed to simulate different reservoir management options, such as optimized hydropower production, irrigation intake from the reservoir or optimized provisioning downstream. The integrated model can be used to investigate the impacts of ...

  • An essential resource: water management, conservation, and preservation

    Sustainable water resource management is the next major global target that will lead corporations, governments, and others to develop system-wide solutions for water, public health, carbon, and energy use. A standardized and certifiable water footprint methodology is necessary to measure, assess, and reduce water usage impacts on humans and the environment. This discussion addresses the issues, ...

  • Integrated Water Resources Management: Basic Concepts

    Definition Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) has been defined by the Technical Committee of the Global Water Partnership (GWP) as "a process which promotes the coordinated development and management of water, land and related resources, in order to maximize the ...

  • Adaptive management and governance of Delaware River water resources

    This paper articulates the complexities of adaptively managing Delaware River water resources to meet shifting priorities of drinking water supply, drought mitigation and flood mitigation, as well as conflicting stakeholder interests. In particular, the paper examines the short-term and long-term programs that comprise the Delaware River Basin Commission's (DRBC) and the 1954 US Supreme ...

  • An optimization procedure for the sustainable management of water resources

    The sustainable management of water resources requires the identification of procedures to optimize the use and management of resources that are able to deal adequately with the problems of an integrated water service. Taking cue from the classic problem of transport of operations research, this paper proposes a procedure to optimize the allocation of resources for water supply in an area. The ...

  • Challenges and approach to integrated water resource management

    Water is the natural resource on which human life, food security and the health of ecosystems depend. The requirement for water is increasing rapidly owing to progressive increase in the demand for irrigation, rapid industrialisation, population growth and improving living standards. The existing water resources are diminishing due to (a) unequal distribution of rain leading to drought, (b) ...
