Sustainable water administration is a key environmental problem of the twenty first century. constructing and enforcing cutting edge administration ways and the way to deal with the expanding complexity and uncertainties used to be the topic of the 1st overseas convention on Adaptive and built-in Water administration, held in November 2007 in Basel, Switzerland. The convention quantity contains chosen contributions on conceptual and methodological strategies and empirical insights from case reviews on very important topics reminiscent of multi-level governance, swap administration, vulnerability overview, environmental flows, uncertainty research and the affects of weather swap. The ebook addresses a large interdisciplinary viewers of scientists and execs from academia, undefined, and concerned with coverage making.

In particular climate change has exposed water systems to situations never experienced in the past and also revealed major vulnerabilities. Adaptive and integrated management is an important strategy for increasing the adaptive capacity of water systems. However, water management regimes are still shaped by the tradition of a command and control approach focusing on technical solutions. The implementation of innovative water management approaches thus requires major structural changes in existing water management regimes.
