New perspectives for the management of water projects

The increasing complexity in the water environment and in water projects strongly questions the effectiveness of traditional water management methods. This book suggests a new approach for the management of water projects that integrates the principles of sustainability, multidimensionality, measurability, comprehensiveness and unpredictability.

These principles are presented in two different parts: firstly, through a scientific approach suggesting a new methodology for the management of water projects and secondly, through pragmatic examples of challenges and key success factors experienced in eight transboundary water projects. Both parts are illustrated by numerous examples drawn from an analysis of eight major water projects in seven transboundary basins: Danube, Tigris and Euphrates, Jordan, Mekong, Guarani Aquifer, Okavango and Nile. This book aims at providing water managers and decision-makers with pragmatic approaches for tackling the complexity of water projects. This publication is a contribution to UNESCO’s PCCP (‘From Potential Conflict to Cooperation Potential’) programme, and enjoys the support of this programme.
