dc.descriptionProceedings of the 1999 Georgia Water Resources Conference, March 30 and 31, Athens, Georgia.en_US
dc.description.abstractThe presentation reviews a monograph produced by the ASCE Task Committee on Sustainability Criteria. The monograph examines many of the major issues and challenges raised by the concept of sustainability applied to water resource system design and management. It reviews various guidelines that have been suggested for achieving a greater degree of sustainability and the extent to which they have been applied in the development and management of water resource systems. It outlines some approaches for measuring and modeling sustainability and illustrates ways in which these measures and models might be used when evaluating alternative designs and operating policies. This monograph is written for those interested and involved in the planning and management of water resource systems. This includes students as well as practitioners. It was written by individuals sharing a background in environmental and water resources systems planning and management, but having differing experiences and opinions. Hence different points of view are presented with the hope that they will stimulate thinking about just how water resource systems should be developed and managed, not only for those living today but also for those who will be dependent on these systems in the future. This document is the product of two groups of professionals: a working group of the International Hydrological Programme of the United Nations Scientific, Educational and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and members of the Task Committee of the Division of Water Resources Planning and Management of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Both groups were formed to explore ways in which the concept of sustainability might be used as a measure of system performance when evaluating alternative water resource plans and management policies.en_US
