Water resources management / Water quality

In the use of water resources different demands must be evaluated against availability. Strategies must be developed  in order to establish priorities, and to determine whether water saving measures are required.

Not the mere availability, but the availability of sufficient fresh water resources of good quality is important. Different users may require different qualities. Salt water intrusion along estuaries and canals and saline coastal aquifers require specific attention. Sufficiently good water quality is required for the conservation of wetland and river ecosystems. IMDC provides the necessary tools to model availability and quality, to investigate scenarios and to develop strategies.
