The present Issue
of the WaterStrategyMan Newsletter is devoted to the
Workshop organised by the ARID Cluster and the
WaterStrategyMan Project in Santa Cruz de la Palma, Canary
Islands. The Workshop took place on February 2nd-4th.
In addition, in this Issue of the Newsletter we present
indicators available for assessment and evaluation in Water
Resources Management. Indicators are instruments of
simplification as they summarise large amounts of
measurements to a simple and understandable form in order to
highlight the main characteristics of a system. The
document accompanying this Issue of the Newsletter presents
the selection of indicators used for the development of the
WaterStrategyMan Decision Support System.
Project (Developing Strategies for Regulating and Managing
Water Resources and Demand in Water Deficient Regions / WSM),
is supported by the European Commission under the Fifth
Framework Programme, under the Key Action
"Sustainable Management and Quality of Water".
