Flow: The Essentials of Environmental Flows




IUCN and its Water and Nature Initiative have published a very handy new guide to "environmental flows" -- the "water regimes provided within a river, wetland or coastal zone to maintain ecosystems and their benefits where there are competing water uses and where flows are regulated".

Flow - The Essentials of Environmental Flows gathers the major lessons from the pioneering work of South Africa, the United States and Australia in a practical guide for the implementation of environmental flows. The publication helps all the different interest groups to implement environmental flows and make rivers healthy again. It explains the technical methods as well as how to change laws, negotiate with stakeholders, and find the means of financing.
