    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Hållbar utveckling är ett ofta använt begrepp, som många inte riktigt förstår eftersom det går på tvärs mot traditionella vetenskapliga begrepp som förutsägelse och styrning. Många vetenskapsmän har tolkat begreppet på sätt som gynnar den egna agendan. READ MORE

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

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

    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
