Integrated water resources management under uncertainty : exploring interconnected technological, infrastructural and institutional solutions
Rapidly growing populations in many of the world's semiarid regions intensify competition for increasingly scarce freshwater resources. Growing urban demands, land-use change, and a changing climate will further exacerbate regional vulnerability to water scarcity. The intensification of these trends creates several challenges for the future planning and management of water resources. In this work we employ the use of an integrated socioeconomic, hydrologic, and ecological modeling framework to quantify the effects of water rights allocation on a representative semiarid river basin. Through this ...
