River Basin Planning

Water stands at the centre of the challenges around food security, economic development, energy generation and climate change. Under these conditions, basin plans need to recognize and be aligned with broader economic development and planning objectives. In this context, strategic basin planning can be defined as: a coherent multidisciplinary approach to managing basin water resources and their users in order to identify and satisfy social, economic and environmental priorities.

The aim of strategic basin planning is not just to meet straightforward, externally set objectives, but to choose from a series of possible water management objectives those that will best contribute to a range of competing economic, social and ecological goals. Further, achieving these goals typically involves the participation of a range of government bodies and stakeholders, beyond those directly involved with water management.
