Description

Water resources management is often challenged by the need to make decisions that address multiple objectives, involve diverse interests, and have far–reaching effects. The question of how to best engage a range of stakeholders and decision makers who often operate in different governance and institutional settings has rightfully captured considerable attention within the water resources community of practice. The answer to the question has continued to be refined as new concepts build on previous ones, technical advances offer new possibilities, and the social and political context within which all decisions are taken continues to evolve.

This book describes achievements in resolving difficult water resources decisions through integrating computer modeling with negotiation processes, the excitement and sense of community at the CADRe07 workshop, and recent progress in building that community and the tools available to it. It documents and defines the current state of the field, seeks to build bridges between experts in technical and procedural aspects of water resources decision making, acts as a ready resource document with a wealth of references, and aspires to reach potential new practitioners. While this combination of technical systems modeling and collaborative processes has power applicable well beyond the bounds of water management, water is the focus of this book. This book will help to reach and inform a wider audience, increase understanding, and provide food for thought, thereby spurring increased use, including by potential new practitioners, and improved practice in water resources management and perhaps beyond.
