This course provides a general overview of water resources development strategies. In the first part a formal systems framework based on a state space formulation of water resources planning is developed. Then optimisation techniques including linear, nonlinear and dynamic programming are explained. Then, various evaluation techniques are explained and demonstrated by the help of case studies. The emphasis is here on classical economic evaluation techniques like cost-benefit analysis, cost-effectiveness approaches.


he objective of this course is to provide an overview about assessment and decision making techniques in water resources development. Due to the fact that water projects exhibit an extremely long lifetime and have also a broad scope of impacts it is obligatory to assess properly the whole set of impacts of water projects. The course tries to develop a methodological framework assisting in the integration of conflicting objectives like economic social and environmental goals.
