Guidelines for the Integrated Management of the Watershed

Maciej Zalewski
Price: $ 20

The concept of Ecohydrology and its scientific foundations were developed by UNESCO-IHP. They are based on the manipulation of biota, landscape and hydrology so that they may augment the ecosystem's resilience to change, while at the same time creating opportunities for interaction. Phytotechnologies on the other hand, are based on the use of vegetation and their natural services, and when used in conjunction with Ecohydrology reduce the shorelines, preserve the soil and landscape and prevent pollution just to mention a few of its objectives. This publication is based on the complementary use of Ecohydrology and Phytotechnologies and similar interests in water resource management. A joint effort of UNEP-DTIE-IETC, UNESCO-IHP and UNESCO-Regional Bureau for Science in Europe (ROSTE), the objective of the guidelines is to assist decision makers, technical experts and scientists alike to manage the watershed and related water bodies while allowing a better understanding of the opportunities that the application of Ecohydrology and Phytotechnologies offer for the purpose.
