      With water availability being an important concern, water managers often use water budgets to quantify and manage water resources. A water budget is an accounting of the rates of the inflows, outflows, and changes in water storage in a specific area; however, as simple as that might sound, developing an accurate water budget can be a difficult and challenging . Achieving sustainable water management requires a multidisciplinary and holistic approach in which technical, environmental, economic, landscape aesthetic, societal and cultural issues are addressed. Further research is required to guide the development of appropriate sustainable water management measures, strategies and policies.

Toward Sustainable Management of Water Resources (Directions in Development) by Ismail Serageldin (Author)Cited by: This collection of essays provides readers with comprehensive information on the principles of sustainable water resources management, as well as recent advances, directions for future research, and policy development for sustainable water resources management.

As a reference, it will be of interest to students, scientists, engineers. Sustainable Water Resources Management presents the most current thinking on the environmental, social, and political dimensions of sustainably managing the water supply at local, regional, or basin levels.

The twin challenges of ensuring an adequate water supply and the optimal allocation for different uses are compounded by changes in climate, land use, demographic patterns, and water availability.

The book explores the geo-chemical, physical, social and economic impacts of climate change on water supplies. It contains examples and case studies from a wide range of countries, and addresses the need to promote sustainable water use across the world. This book provides a comprehensive, interdisciplinary and highly accessible introduction to water resource management, covering topics such as: • the ecology of surface waters • international regulations and economics • stakeholder participation in management.

Written by leading policy makers, lawyers, economists, hydrologists, ecologists, engineers, and planners, Sustainable Water reaches across disciplines to address problems and solutions for the sustainable use of water in urban areas.

The distribution of water in space and time is extremely important to secure water to human. Water resource systems that can satisfy the changing demands inevitably placed on them without significant system degradation can rightly be called sustainable. Discussing some of the fundamental factors and approaches connected with water sustainability, this book provides a broad introduction to the subject.

The book highlights aspects of urban water management and mitigating strategies for droughts and floods along with case studies and covers optimum use of irrigation water and aspects of water re-use. Finally, the book summarizes global water resources and various aspects of issues related to sustainable water resources management.

Water is a finite resource that is fundamental to human well-being and only renewable if well managed. Smart water management is a pre-condition.

This OECD series on water provides policy analysis and guidance on the economic, financial and governance aspects of water resources management. These aspects generally lie at the heart of the water problem and hold the key to unlocking the policy puzzle.
