Water diplomacy in action : contingent approaches to managing complex water problems by Shafiqul Islam( )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Complex water problems cannot be resolved by numbers or narratives. Contingent and negotiated approaches are necessary for actionable outcome. In the face of a constantly changing array of interconnected water issues that cross multiple boundaries, the challenge is how to translate solutions that emerge from science and technology into the context of real-world policy and politics. Water Diplomacy in Action addresses this task by synthesizing two emerging ideas––complexity science and negotiation theory––to understand and manage risks and opportunities for an uncertain water future. Rooted in the ideas of complexity science and mutual gains negotiation, this edited volume shows why traditional systems engineering approaches may not work for complex problems, what emerging tools and techniques are needed and how these are used to resolve complex water problems
Towards sustainable watershed management : using system dynamics for integrated water resources planning by Kaveh Madani( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within watersheds, social, economical, political and physical subsystems interact. While making decisions, decision makers should be aware of such interactions as any new policy will not only affect one subsystem. To see if a specific management policy is proper, an integrated study is needed of complicated water management system in the basin, considering major physical, social, economical and political aspects of it. System Dynamics provides a unique framework for integrating the disparate physical and social systems important to water resource management and can be used to comprehend the interaction of different drivers of the problem. Here, this approach is used to find, for different scenarios, how various options of demand management and population control can be more effective when combined with transbasin water diversions, increasing water storage capacity and controlling of groundwater withdrawal in the river basin. A simulation model is built based on Causal Loop Diagrams of the watershed problem to comprehend the dynamic and interrelated characteristic of the system, and convey experiences, lessons learned, and perceptions gained through the model development process
