Stakeholder involvement in water management using Object-oriented Bayesian networks and economic models in Spain
Research Areas
  • Agricultural policy
To meet an ever increasing demand for water, many arid and semiarid countries have in the past few decades been encouraged to develop ground water resources on an intensive basis. Ground water exploitation has traditionally been undertaken by individual farmers, with minimum public involvement (Llamas and Martinez-Santos 2005). In some cases uncontrolled expansion has lead to the over exploitation of the groundwater resource, a situation that has been allowed to develop largely through the lack of coordination between water administrators and water users (Fornés et al. 2005). In order to develop sustainable management agendas to help cope with the challenges posed by these overexploited areas the implementation of integrated water resource management policies has been encouraged In Europe this has been accomplished through the implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) in 2000. The WFD fully endorses the concept of ¿Integrated Water Resources Management¿ (IWRM) and represents a change in the way that water resource issues are handled (Pahl-Wostl et al. 2008).
