Abstract

Sustainable water resource management calls for the convergence of concepts and strategies, and revolves around determining causal-effect relationships as tools for identifying informed mitigation and planning choices. The current paper proposes a new comprehensive approach built within the Globaqua Coordination Project, incorporating well-established and validated indicator-based principles for the implementation of informed Measures and River Basin Management Plans Programmes: a. The (drivers, pressures, state, impact and response model of interventions) DPSIR framework, which is a central instrument for addressing the requirements of the Water Framework Directive and the concepts embedded in the Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) system; b. The Ecosystem Services Approach emphasizing the connections between ecosystem services, ecosystem changes and human well-being, c. Assessment of scenarios for assessing future conditions to ensure sustainability in water resource use. Implementation of the current integrated system in two river basins, Ebro in Spain and Evrotas in Greece, highlighted the need for revised options aimed at reducing water pollution, steps to ensure water supply that meets demand even under climate change conditions and increased water stress, and the need for improved environmental and resource cost assessment.
