Moving Toward Sustainable Water Resources Management: Synthesis Report

FTN Associates, Ltd.
Water Supply Planning


This report provides a framework, guidelines, and supporting information for developing an implementation plan for sustainable water resources management (SWRM). The framework accounts for the reality that SWRM may not receive attention until a crisis occurs, but it also encourages proactive planning to avert a crisis. The SWRM framework incorporates theories, principles, and guidelines proposed by the United Nations Agenda 21, Global Water Partnership, Western Governor's Association, Resilience Alliance, Pacific Institute, and similar organizations.
