This book is open access under a CC BY-NC revised, updated textbook presents a systems approach to the planning, management, and operation of water resources infrastructure in the environment. Previously published in by UNESCO and Deltares (Delft Hydraulics at the time).

Water resource systems research provides a basis for rational water management in large basins. The design and operation of water resource systems are both the most complicated and the most important tasks of water management.

This book deals with the basic issues involved in the application of systems sciences to water Edition: 1. Chapter 2. Economic Analysis of Water Resources Daene C. McKinney Cost – Benefit Analysis Choosing Among Feasible Alternatives Economic analysis, or the understanding and prediction of decision making under conditions of resource scarcity, plays a major role in the planning, design and management of sustainable water resource systems.

By systemic analysis it is meant an integrated approach that includes natural resources (in this case water resources) as a part of functional systems, in. Focusing on conflict resolution, Water Resources Systems Analysis discusses systematic approaches to the mathematical modeling of various water resources issues, which helps decision-makers allocate water effectively and efficiently.

SIMONOVIC Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, The University of Western Ontario, London, ON, Canada N6A 5B9 (E-mail: [email protected]) SUMMARY Water resources systems management practice around the world is challenged by serious problems.

The modelling and analysis of water resources systems involves science and it also involves people and politics. It is a challenge, but it is also fulfilling. This book builds on a text titled Water Resources Systems Planning and Analysisby Loucks, Stedinger and Haith published by Prentice Hall in Managing water effectively means reconciling the often conflicting goals of conservation, irrigation, drainage, supply, flood control, hydropower, waste, recreation, and other needs.
