Water Resources Development: Economic and Legal Aspects


It is proposed to assess the admissible runoff withdrawals in small river basins by a complex of calculations involving hydrological analysis, the estimation of conditions required for the sustainable functioning of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and, finally, the evaluation of the admissible withdrawals based on the functioning conditions of an existing or anticipated water management system.
