Guidelines on spate irrigation( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spate irrigation is an ancient practice by which floodwater is diverted from its river bed and channeled to basins. It has evolved over the centuries and provided rural populations in arid and semi-arid regions with an ingenious way to manage their scarce water resources. Different from conventional irrigation in many ways, it needs special skills and approaches that address the unpredictability and magnitude of spate floods and their high sediment load. The objective of this publication is to assist planners and practitioners in designing and managing spate irrigation projects looking at the hydrology, the engineering, the agronomy, the economics and local organization and rules. It is designed to be both a practical guidance document and a source of information and examples, based on experience from across the world in places where spate irrigation is practiced.--Publisher's description

Appropriate Groundwater Management Policy for Sub-Saharan Africa : In Face of Demographic Pressure and Climatic Variability. by Albert Tuinhof( )

2 editions published in 2011 in Undetermined and English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper provides an overview of major groundwater issues for Sub-Saharan Africa, with an assessment of their policy implications in terms of potential development and appropriate management. In terms of construction time, capital outlay and drought resilience, groundwater is the preferred source to meet most water-supply demands, despite hydro geological complexity, natural constraints on water well yields and quality, and institutional weaknesses. The 'new developmental agenda' relates to improving urban water-supply security and expanding irrigated agriculture to meet these challenges many countries need to undertake strategic assessment of their groundwater and prioritize investment on institutional strengthening so as to facilitate appropriately-managed groundwater development. Without effective use of available groundwater resources, improved livelihoods and climate-change adaptation will prove much more difficult to achieve
Green roads for water : guidelines for road infrastructure in support of water management and climate resilience by Frank van Steenbergen( )

2 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roads and water are generally seen as enemies, with water responsible for most of the damage to roads, and roads being a major cause of problems such as erosion, waterlogging, flooding, and dust storms. This tension, however, can be reversed. The concept of Green Roads for Water places roads in the service of water and landscape management and climate resilience without sacrificing or diminishing their transport functions. With global investment in roads of US dollars of 1-2 trillion per year, plus maintenance costs, the widespread adoption of Green Roads approaches can leverage investment at a transformative scale, making road development and maintenance a vital tool for achieving climate resilience, water security, and productive use of natural resources. Green Roads for Water: Guidelines for Road Infrastructure in Support of Water Management and Climate Resilience provides strategies to use roads for beneficial water management tailored to diverse landscapes and climates, including watershed areas, semiarid climates, coastal lowlands, mountainous areas, and floodplains. The underlying premise of Green Roads is therefore quite simple: designing roads to fit their natural and anthropomorphic contexts; minimize externalities; and balance preservation of the road, water resources, landscape, and soil resources will usually cost less than traditional protective resilience approaches and will produce more sustainable overall outcomes

Groundwater and Surface Water in the Mega-Irrigation Systems of Pakistan The Case for Conjunctive Management( )

1 edition published in 2020 in Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Groundwater use has increased across Pakistan, nowhere more than in the large canal-irrigated areas of the Indus basin irrigation system (IBIS). These mega-irrigation systems use surface water and groundwater, often in equal measure. The two water sources are the same source and should be managed as such. Groundwater supplied by seepage from the surface system is pumped up to complement surface water supplies. The delivery of surface water supplies determines how much groundwater is used and how much recharge will happen. In most cases, such conjunctive management will not 'cost' extra water to make significant gains in yields and support drought resilience. This case study discusses Pakistan's contrasting experiences with conjunctive use in the Punjab and Sindh provinces and attempts to move toward conjunctive management

Transforming landscapes, transforming lives : the business of sustainable water buffer management by Frank van Steenbergen( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about sustainable land management, the development of water buffers and the business case underneath it. It is part of the discussion on the green economy: investment in natural resource management makes business sense. This also applies for investment in land, water and vegetative cover. Some of the parameters may be different – returns may not always be immediate – but essentially both the financial payback and the economic dividend of investing in integrated landscapes – if done properly – are rewarding. The social impact moreover is important – investing in sustainable land and water buffers will transform lives and economies. Having a buffer gives a sense of security and the reassurance that come what may one’s livelihood is secured
Internationale toetsing van de waterhouderij by Albert Tuinhof( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in Dutch and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nederland heeft een overvloed aan water maar kampt tegelijkertijd met droogte. Het concept ‘Waterhouderij’ biedt een oplossing voor private ondernemers en grondeigenaren: ondernemen met grond is ondernemen met water. Nu wordt dit concept in Nederland ontwikkeld, maar welke ervaringen zijn al opgedaan in het buitenland? Dit rapport biedt u een internationale kijk op de Waterhouderij

Managing the water buffer for development and climate change adaptation : groundwater recharge, retention, reuse and rainwater storage by Frank van Steenbergen( )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores how to maximize the use of groundwater and rainwater for development and climate change adaption in an approach called 3R. The vision of 3R is to give people the means and confidence to protect their livelihoods in response to climatic changes, and to improve local water management to ensure reliable access to water, economic development and the integrity of their environment. This book is prepared for land use planners and catchment managers, for all those concerned with water management and climate change. The point of departure is the buffer function in a region. Managing the local water buffer is of vital importance – it determines livelihoods of people and the economy of an area. The philosophy outlined in this book is to optimise the management of this buffer function through three (3R) subsequent steps
