This book is about water – in Britain, and in the world. It is about water resources, their conservation, protection of water quality for human consumption and aquatic ecosystems. Since the publication of the first edition in 1998, major political and regulatory changes have taken place; this book provides a clear and comprehensive update of conservation and water resource management issues in the UK over the past two decades, and – in an expansion of its original UK perspective – now includes examples of global best practice. The UK’s 2003 adoption of the EU Water Framework Directive has had enormous implications for the conservation and management of our water resources. In 2016, with the UK’s decision to leave the EU, the governance scene is entering upon an unpredictable future regarding its major water resource policies. The Protection and Conservation of Water Resources, Second edition provides a clear and comprehensive update of conservation and water resource management issues. Chapter 1 deals with sustainability and water policy, outlines the issues and challenges, and asks: what is integrated water management? Chapter 2 reviews water availability and sufficiency in Britain, while Chapter 3 explores the dynamic between institutions and legislative framework. Chapter 4 introduces the catchment approach, and chapters 5 and 6 explore the issues of sustaining bulk supply and the imperatives of climate change. Chapter 7 looks at the contemporary background to water quality issues, and Chapter 8 provides case studies of catchment problems, both urban and rural. Chapter 9 describes solutions in land use change, including technical fixes and their sustainability. Chapter 10 is concerned with emerging governance arrangements, and Chapter 11 takes a global view, looking at successful examples around the world to find positive lessons from Europe, north America and Australia.

The recognition of the importance of Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) is largely in response to addressing the ever-increasing limited water quality and quantity problems that the world faces. Whereas officially, the United Nations through the Global Water Partnership (GWP) has endorsed IWRM as the best means to water resources management, lessons learnt from implementation to date, suggest the need to highlight the planning process more than the plan itself. The methodological synthesis of the study incorporates ideas from broad theoretical areas covering ecological, economics, community and change management settings to inform the design of what is described as the appreciative systems planning (ASP) methodology used in this book. The major contribution of this book is the design of a framework to overcome the dilemma of facilitating stakeholder involvement in IWRM planning processes. Of particular importance is the explicit focus on the connection between social, economic and environmental dimensions in decision-making that the water resources issues represent.

Water management is a key environmental issue in controlling of floods and reducing droughts. This book provides analysis of the main issues, offering solutions and describing good practice. Water Resources for the Built Environment: management issues and solutions develops an appreciation of the diverse, complex and current themes of the water resources debate across the built environment, urban development and management continuum. The integration of physical and environmental sciences, combined with social, economic and political sciences, provide a unique resource, useful to policy experts, scientists, engineers and subject enthusiasts. By taking an interdisciplinary approach, water resources issues and impacts on the built environment are presented in the inventive and strategic setting of considering the constraints of delivering potable water to an ever-demanding society who, at the same time, are increasingly aware of living in an urban landscape where excessive surface water creates a flood threatened environment – hence, the need to portray a balance between ‘too little vs. too much’. This unique approach to the water resources debate presents a multifaceted collection of chapters that address the contemporary concomitant issues of water shortage and urban flooding and proffers solutions specifically for the built environment. The book is structured into three parts: the first part (Sections 2, 3 and 4) addresses management issues and solutions to minimise water shortages and provide water security for society; whilst the second part of the book (Sections 5 and 6) addresses management issues and solutions to control excessive rainfall and minimise flooding impacts. The third part (Section 7) contextualises the issues of the earlier sections within international case studies from the developing world.

Tiina Salonen Strategies, Structures, and Processes for Network and Resources Management in Industrial Parks

In the recent years the number of industrial parks has grown rapidly worldwide driven by economic policies and industrial restructuring. The high resource consumption and prices as well as stringent environmental policies and laws have pushed the strategic importance of efficient resources management. Due to the proximity of companies, industrial parks offer potential for the development of interorganizational resource exchanges, in terms of energy and waste, infrastructure sharing and joint services. Utilizing this potential enhances the resource efficiency and added value of companies while often reducing their environmental impacts. Efficient management of resources in industrial parks requires an appropriate management concept. However, the research and literature on the management of industrial parks is very limited. As a solution the author introduces the concept for integrated resources management. The theoretical status quo of the concept is studied from the perspective of industrial ecology with the conclusion that the approach lacks a strategic management dimension. To tackle the problem, the author draws upon the strategic management and organizational theories as well as the approaches of network and environmental management. The empirical insights into the concept are sought by analyzing applied practices to network and resources management in industrial parks. The case studies comprise representative examples of successful industrial restructuring from Germany s...

Modeling Lake Naivasha, Kenya and its surroundings is an issue of very high significance because of great socio-cultural, ecological and economic values. The basin comprises a biosphere reserve, a national park with a variety of wildlife, a significant livestock activity, a very fertile land for agriculture and a growing tourism industry. The prevailing system of uncoordinated water resources management in the basin cannot sustain the ever-increasing water needs of the various expanding sectors. Therefore a strategy must be sought to integrate the various sectoral needs against the available water resources in order to attain both economic and ecological sustainability. The study attempts to develop, for the first time in the Lake Naivasha Basin, an integrated water resource management model. In order to understand the situation in the whole catchment and identify where problems exist and the weakness that affect the catchment and their improvement.

A new, more comprehensive approach to long-term family wealth management More Than Money provides a high-level, integrated approach to preserving both financial resources and family harmony. Research has shown a failure rate of 70 percent in long-term multigenerational wealth management, and contrary to popular assumption, only five percent of that failure is due to bad investment, poor tax planning, or inadequate performance by legal and financial advisors. The number-one reason family wealth management fails is the family itself; poor communication, lack of trust, divergent visions, and a failure to prepare succeeding generations will tear down the resources the family has worked so hard to build. Traditional wealth management cannot fix this. Instead, this book offers a fresh approach that integrates strategic and tactical wealth management to align the family’s assets with the family members. With helpful tools and advice drawn from a real-world understanding of family complexities, you’ll improve your ability to preserve your family’s resources over multiple generations. With an expert’s perspective on the real forces behind successful family wealth management, this book provides a clear model and a practical roadmap for long-term financial preservation. Develop a shared family vision and mission Improve communication and trust among members Merge strategic and tactical planning Ensure the longevity of your family’s wealth The wealth management sphere tends to focus on taxes, investments, banking, and estate planning, but little thought is given to the people themselves—this overlooks the fact that individual family members are the most critical factor in multigenerational wealth management, and fails to provide solutions. More Than Money merges traditional strategies with family dynamics, communication, governance, and preparation to help your resources last for generations to come.

C. P. Kumar Impact of Climate Change on Groundwater Resources

Academic Paper from the year 2014 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Meteorology, Aeronomy, Climatology, , language: English, abstract: Climate change poses uncertainties to the supply and management of water resources. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) estimates that the global mean surface temperature has increased 0.6 ± 0.2 oC since 1861, and predicts an increase of 2 to 4 oC over the next 100 years. Temperature increases also affect the hydrologic cycle by directly increasing evaporation of available surface water and vegetation transpiration. Consequently, these changes can influence precipitation amounts, timings and intensity rates, and indirectly impact the flux and storage of water in surface and subsurface reservoirs (i.e., lakes, soil moisture, groundwater). In addition, there may be other associated impacts, such as sea water intrusion, water quality deterioration, potable water shortage, etc. While climate change affects surface water resources directly through changes in the major long-term climate variables such as air temperature, precipitation, and evapotranspiration, the relationship between the changing climate variables and groundwater is more complicated and poorly understood. The greater variability in rainfall could mean more frequent and prolonged periods of high or low groundwater levels, and saline intrusion in coastal aquifers due to sea level rise and resource reduction. Groundwater resources are related to climate change...

Dipendra Gautam Water Management through Indigenous Knowledge. A Case of Historic Settlement of Bhaktapur City, Nepal

Techno-Anthropological approach has been formulated in researching a traditional settlement of Bhaktapur City, Nepal. The practices of indigenous people have been analyzed by juxtaposing the science along with the indigenous technology. It has been significantly concluded that, the impetus behind the city sustainability is primarily the indigenous knowledge and sometimes this knowledge is overwhelming to even the modern scientific aspects too. Indigenous technology of water management in the historic city of Bhaktapur has been also found to be significant not only in terms of supply rather in terms of quality of water too. The reusability of water resources has given an excellent paradigm even to the modern approaches too. The lifestyle in terms of culture and religion has been associated with water for this city, and water management is also facilitated through cultural practices and religious establishments. A city regarded as 'City of Devotees' has disseminated a remarkable approach for the water management by keeping aside the modern scientific approaches. The city was established in the 13th century and practices are continuously adopted since then as indigenous practices through unrelenting trial and error, the indigenous technology of water management has been found to be rational hence revitalization of some components might be more energy efficient and economic for present day water scarcity solution in the city

This book, RURAL WATER SUPPLY discusses, essentially, the basic fundamentals of Hydrology and Water Resources. It proffers solutions to the issue of non-availability of safe water for human consumption. It's also emphasized on the importance of spatial distribution of social services such as potable water supply thereby creating an essential platform for rational planning of water scheme most especially in the less developed cities. The book, also, employs much illustration from the local environment as well as the developed nations of the world. In addition, discussions are followed by Plates, Figures and Tables. These efforts are aimed at simplifying the central tenet of the subject, and this is necessary in order to establish a solid foundation for the learners who are, in most cases, very skeptical about water resource management. This book, therefore, serves as a bold step taken towards allaying all categories of fears about Hydrology and Water Resources. More so, tertiary students will benefit immensely from this book as well as anybody else who is interested in water resources management.

Darko Lugonja Selection of Candidates as a Function of Human Resources Management in the Company

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, University of Zagreb (Institute of Economics), course: MBA - Human resources management and development, language: English, abstract: Contemporary business management is based on management of resources, particularly human resources. Planning, recruiting and selecting candidates are key human resource functions. Business leaders are continuously engaged in the process of reconsidering roles and goals, managing the business in the most appropriate way. Selection, based upon internal candidates recruitment was a rule in a lack of certain employees profiles. But, solving the human resources insufficiency problem, we often refocus our attention to external candidates recruitment and selection. Besides contacts and colaboration with media and recruitment agencies, we also need strengthening of our own potentials. Selection through our own human resource department or engagement of selection agency / professionals is a routine, but when we have to cope with several constraints like human resources and financial resources limits, then we have to rely on selection aproach more flexible and adaptive to ocassions. Media support, at least an adequate Internet promotion, lead to rising number of candidates applications. But choice of the right candidate is the art, we have to accept the fact. 3 C concept (Cost, communication, and concept itself) may help in imp...

Annamalai Murugan Human Resource Management in 15 Lessons

Human resource is the most important asset of any organization and, unlike other resources, human resources can theoretically be developed and increased to a limitless extent. Human resources mean the energies, skills, knowledge and physical strength of the people at work. Human resources comprise the value of the productive capacity of the entire work force of any organization. To be specific and brief, human resource refers to the aggregate of knowledge, skill, experience and health of employees working in any organization. Development of human resources accounts for the development of the human side of an organization. Today, management is absolutely essential for all organizations, irrespective of their origin, nature and ownership. Every enterprise, established with a profit-seeking motive or some social, religious or other purposes, requires efficient management for its sustained progress. But management has been viewed differently by various scholars, depending upon their belief and comprehensions. Some regard it as the force that runs a business and is responsible for its success or failure. Others perceive it as a means for achievement of desired results through group efforts and by utilising both human and non-human resources. Still others deem management to be a process comprising planning, organising, staffing, directing and controlling. Also, some look at it as an instrument for designing and maintaining an environment conducive to the performance of individuals ...

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Business economics - Business Ethics, Corporate Ethics, grade: 1,7, University of Hohenheim (Institut für Agrarpolitik und Landwirtschaftliche Marktlehre), course: Management in der Ernährungswirtschaft, language: English, abstract: In many ways water is of vital importance for humanity. But 1.1 billion people in developing countries today have inadequate access to water. While competition for water increases worldwide, agriculture - the major user of water - is challenged to manage water in a more efficient and environmentally sustainable way. Meanwhile, the governance of the global agri-food system is undergoing significant changes, thus altering business relationships. These altered business relationships raise questions about the impact of food business on water resources. The central research question of this paper, applied to developing countries, is: Does food business satisfy the interests of Environmental Special-Interest Groups and farmers in efficient and environmentally sustainable agricultural water management, as well as the interests in the related arrangements of relationships? Drawing on stakeholder theory, the relationships between food business, environmental stakeholders, farmers, and water resources are explored. By transferring the key principles of value creation, dialog, and continuous improvement on food business, critical factors were identified. Value creation, inclusiveness, and accountability are c...

Nakarmi Ganga Measuring Management Effectiveness in Protected Areas

Over the last few years, evaluation of the management effectiveness in protected areas has been considered as one of the essential aspects in the field of protected area management. However, systematic periodic monitoring reports and research feedbacks are scanty. With this regard, this study was undertaken to test an evaluation methodology and indicators for effective management in Chitwan National Park, Nepal. This assessment was carried out by applying De Faria methodology, and it encompasses elements such as context, planning, input, process, and outputs of the IUCN-WCPA framework. Evaluation is a broad area, and can be carried out as much as possible based on need and resources. So, although this assessment is not claimed to be a comprehensive one, the findings are helpful to corrective management practices in a more adaptive, effective and participatory approach. Therefore, this book should be useful to professionals in resource management and conservation field, especially park managers to do self-assessment in both site and system levels, and also to the government who should understand the situation and create favorable circumstances for sustainable resource management and development.

Kaveh Madani Towards Sustainable Watershed Management

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.

Linus Elangwe Water . Sanitation Knowledge Management in Rural Cameroon

Master's Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Development Politics, University of Sussex (Institute of Development Studies), language: English, abstract: The purpose of this study is to move beyond conventional thinking on rural water (and sanitation) infrastructure and resource management. The study acknowledges the existence of other water management and sanitation tools but it engages its argument from a knowledge management perspective. In most rural areas, water and sanitation projects have been implemented and community members only enjoy these facilities for a short time. Why? The reason is simple. Most donors and governments are often concerned with the specificity of their projects/programmes, long-term sustainability is rarely guaranteed and those who are left to manage these water systems lack the necessary capacities (skills & knowledge). Consequently, after few years of implementation most water supply are been closed down while sanitation structures are fast deteriorating due to poor management and lack of post-project government/donor support. This study on water and sanitation knowledge management (WKM) highlights some of these pitfalls in rural Cameroon; it acknowledges the fact that knowledge is always incomplete and that rural water supply systems are in themselves a complex and dynamic system involving risks and uncertainties. The study takes a look at the recent literatures on water resource managemen...

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Geowissenschaften / Geographie - Wirtschaftsgeographie, Note: 1,0, Christian-Albrechts-Universität Kiel (Geographisches Institut), 79 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to introduce impact monitoring as a tool of assessing improvement in development projects with a focus on sustainable management of natural resources at municipal level. The impact monitoring system is introduced in theory as well as in practice on the basis of project examples in South Africa. The South African Government identified inappropriate utilization of natural resources leading to degradation and impacting negatively on the economic potential and on biodiversity of rural areas as a main obstacle for development. This overexploitation and degradation of the natural resources due to lack of alternative opportunities for subsistence and income generation finally reduces further income generating opportunities in the long term. This lead to an innovative, participatory conservation approach called Community-Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM). CBNRM attempts, simultaneously, to secure rural people's livelihoods, improve the natural resource base, and to strengthen local governance potential. In contrast to earlier strategies which have dealt with resource protection and/or nature conservation, now the community with its ecological as well as economic problems takes centre stage.
