NeWater - State-of-the-art report with users' requirements for new IWRM tools
The NeWater project focuses on the transition of current water management regimes to adaptive water management. To assess and manage the transition a range of tools are to be developed or enhanced. In the process of identifying these tools a review of existing generic tool types including initial user requirements has been made. The chosen topics for the review are the Global Water Partnership Toolbox, tools in FP5 Harmoni-CA/CatchMod projects, tools including uncertainty, economic tools, tools supporting participatory processes, decision support systems, and tools for integrated framework. The reviewed tool under each topic have been selected from among those well known to the authors and is not a full review of all the existing tools that could be used for IWRM.
