  1. 1. METHODS FOR TRANSBOUNDARY WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT IN WATER STRESSED REGIONS – CASE STUDY: SOUTHERN AFRICA

    Author : Dinis Juizo; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; river basin simulation; water quality monitoring; stakeholders involvement; Southern Africa; South Africa; Mozambique; transboundary water systems; Swaziland;

    Abstract : Water resources management in water scarce regions like the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) is challenging with both large hydro-climatic-induced scarcity and the considerable inter-annual fluctuations at the centre of the allocation problem. Water must be allocated both in time and space using acceptable criteria and most importantly, all stakeholders must adhere to the decisions imposed by water sharing agreements. READ MORE

  2. 2. Framing the Water Challenge Multilateral donor policies for water supply and sanitation 1960-2005

    University dissertation from Umeå : Ekonomisk historia

    Author : Anna Bohman; Umeå universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES and RELIGION History and philosophy subjects History subjects Economic history; HUMANIORA och RELIGIONSVETENSKAP Historisk-filosofiska ämnen Historieämnen Ekonomisk historia; Water Supply; Sanitation; Official Development Assistance; Institutional change; Problem Frames; Ghana; Private Sector Participation;

    Abstract : Opinions on what is best way to provide more people in low income countries with adequate water and sanitation services have changed over time. A recent policy paradigm suggests that private companies should be involved in WSS service provision to improve the situation for those in need. READ MORE

  3. 3. Uncertainty Modelling in Hydrological Applications - Error Propagation Properties of Random Linear Systems

    University dissertation from Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Jan Agerholm Høybye; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; geographical and geological engineering; Hydrogeology; floods; water quality; prediction uncertainty; differential equations; Stochastic hydrology; random functions; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; teknisk geografi; Geophysics; physical oceanography; meteorology; Geofysik; fysisk oceanografi; meteorologi;

    Abstract : In hydrological models for water resources management and planning, the model output or design quantities are functions of the input data and a number of parameters that are essentially stochastic processes or random variables. The task of uncertainty analysis is to estimate the uncertainty characteristics of the model output in terms of the uncertainties in the input, model parameters and initial conditions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Landslide of contaminated soil into rivers: Environmental impacts and risks

    University dissertation from Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Gunnel Göransson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; contaminated soil; landslide; risk assessment; river; water quality;

    Abstract : Landslide risk assessments and environmental risk assessments are routinely carried out in many countries exposed to landslide hazards and/or contaminated soil hazards, but separately from each other. By combining results from different types of risk assessments and superimposing the results, possible multi-hazards may be revealed, which is not the case when the results are only displayed independently.

  5. 5. Sustainable Arsenic Mitigation A Strategy for Scaling-up Safe Water Access A Strategy for Scaling-up Safe Water Access

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mohammed Hossain; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bangladesh; drinking water; arsenic mitigation; local tubewell driller; sediment color tool; low-manganese; Intermediate Deep aquifer; Land and Water Resources Engineering; Mark- och vattenteknik;

    Abstract : In rural Bangladesh, the drinking water supply is mostly dependent upon manually operated hand pumped tubewells, installed by the local community. The presence of natural arsenic (As) in groundwater and its wide scale occurrence has drastically reduced the safe water access across the country and put tens of millions of people under health risk.
