The evolution of water resource planning and decision making. [Clifford S Russell; Duane D Baumann; Institute for Water Resources (U.S.);] -- This book explores the evolution of water-related analytical capabilities and institutions and provides illustrations from case studies, concluding with recommendations for research, institutional.

  Water resource systems are typically far more complex than what analysts can model and simulate. The reason is not primarily due to computational limitations but rather it is because we do not understand sufficiently the multiple interdependent physical, biochemical, ecological, social, legal, and political (human) processes that govern the behavior of such water resource by: 1. The purpose of education is to create an informed public and thereby improve its abilities to participate in decision-making processes (NRC, b; Popovic, ). Public education is part of a larger process that involves the development of public decision-making capacity with the intent of enhancing public involvement in decision making. The Decision Center for a Desert City conducts climate, water, and decision research and develops innovative tools to bridge the boundary between scientists and decision makers and put their work into the hands of those whose concern is for the sustainable future of Greater Phoenix.

A structured, participatory, model-based approach to decision-making for biodiversity conservation has been proven to produce real-world change. There are surprisingly few successful case studies, however; some of the best are presented here, from fisheries, pest management and conservation. Data for Water Decision Making Informing the Implementation of California’s Open and Transparent Water Data Act through Research and Engagement. January A lack of data and information has limited our ability to understand, let alone better manage, all aspects of our water resources. Decision-making Structures. In discussing the theory of public participation, it is useful to review broad theories of decision-making structures.
