Sustainability criteria for water resource systems( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Water resources professionals have an obligation to conceive and manage water resource systems so that they will fully contribute to an improved quality of life. Those sustainable water resource systems will be able to satisfy the changing demands that will inevitably be placed on them, without significant system degradation. An international group of experts has reviewed various guidelines for achieving greater degrees of sustainability and the extent to which they have been applied in a number of case studies. The group provides approaches for measuring and modeling sustainability and ways in which these measures and models might be used when evaluating alternative designs and operating policies are illustrated."--publisher's desccription

Aquatic habitats in sustainable urban water management : science, policy and practice by Iwona Wagner( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aquatic habitats supply a wide range of vital ecosystem benefits to cities and their inhabitants. The unsustainable use of aquatic habitats, including inadequate urban water management, however, tends to alter and reduce their biodiversity and thereby diminish their ability to provide clean water, protect humans from waterborne diseases and pollutants, keep urban areas safe from flooding, and support recreational ecosystem services and even aesthetic enjoyment. This publication aims at improving understanding of aquatic habitats, related ecosystem goods and services, and conservation and sustainable use, with a special focus on their integration into urban water management.--Publisher's description

Water and energy : demand and effects by G. H Davis( Book )

6 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Water and energy are closely interconnected and highly interdependent. Choices made and actions taken in one domain can greatly affect the other, positively or negatively. Trade-offs need to be managed to limit negative impacts and foster opportunities for synergy. Water and energy have crucial impacts on poverty alleviation both directly, as a number of the Millennium Development Goals depend on major improvements in access to water, sanitation, power and energy sources, and indirectly, as water and energy can be binding constraints on economic growth - the ultimate hope for widespread poverty reduction. The Report provides a comprehensive overview of major and emerging trends from around the world, with examples of how some of the trend-related challenges have been addressed, their implications for policy-makers, and further actions that can be taken by stakeholders and the international community. The WWDR 2014 on Water and Energy is the first that follows the new "formula" agreed by UN-Water in 2012. Indeed, the WWDR is now an annual and thematic report with a focus on different strategic water issues each year. It is shorter - in the order of 100 pages - with a standardized structure and data and case studies annexes related to the theme

Integrated urban water management : humid tropics by Carlos E. M Tucci( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Excess water in the urban environment leads to flooding, which in turn causes structural damage, risks to personal safety and disruption to city life. Water is also a major contributory factor in disease transmission as well as being the transport medium of many pollutants. These problems are of increasing concern due to climate changes and are particularly apparent in the humid tropics. This publication, the output of a project by UNESCO's International Hydrological Program on the topic, focuses on engineering aspects related to water supply, wastewater and stormwater management in the humid tropics. Flood control is dealt with, focusing on reducing vulnerability to flood disasters in urban areas. The book also addresses environmental health concerns related to the different components of the urban water system and proposes strategies for their control. It illustrates different aspects of integrated water management in the urban environment by drawing upon a set of case studies, predominantly from South America.--Publisher's description
