Flow : the essentials of environmental flows

An environmental flow is the water regime 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. Pioneering efforts in South Africa, Australia and the United States have shown that the process to establish them poses great challenges. Second in the series of the Water & Nature Initiative, this guide draws extensively on the experiences in these countries to offer hands-on advice and practical guidance on technical issues for this emerging issue on the water resource agenda. Note: Includes bibliographic references. Translation in Spanish, Portuguese, French, Chinese, Khmer, Burmese, Vietnamese, Lao and Thai also available. Language versions issued separately. 2nd ed. published in 2008.
