Sustainable water management is part of sustainable development; meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own water needs. Achieving sustainable water management requires a multidisciplinary and holistic approach in which technical, environmental, economic, landscape aesthetic, societal and cultural issues are addressed. Further research is required to guide the development of appropriate sustainable water management measures, strategies and policies.
The wider research community is therefore invited to contribute to this special issue by submitting comprehensive critical reviews and original research articles.
