Integrated water management of transboundary catchments

Integrated water management of transboundary catchments

Objective

Transboundary catchments are usually differently managed in each country, not respecting the interests of its neighbour. These different approaches to utilization of the catchments may have catastrophic effects. The main goal of the project will be to create a Decision Support System (DSS) that will allow an integrated water management system within the scope of the transboundary catchments. It will be able to cope with the complexity of the water resources systems and the uncertainty of decision-making. The DSS will be built around modules that allow simulation of the range of different climatic, topographic, environmental and socio-economic conditions. Five pilot sites with different natural, social, political, and economical conditions were selected so that collection and evaluation of the data would be as broad and as general as possible.
