Indicadores de desempeño para servicios de abastecimiento de agua Indicadores de desempeño para servicios de abastecimiento de agua

ISBN: 978-84-9048-664-1

This book is a Spanish translation of Performance Indicators for Water Supply Services: Third Edition.

Esta obra es fruto de la traducción al español del libro de Indicadores de desempeño para servicios de abastecimiento de agua de la International Water Association. Se trata del segundo libro de una serie de tres traducciones de manuales de buenas prácticas de la IWA que están viendo la luz gracias al compromiso del grupo Global Omnium con la mejora de la gestión de los servicios urbanos de agua. El manual que tiene ante sí es ya todo un clásico que fue actualizado hace apenas un año y medio en su versión inglesa. Se trata sin duda de la referencia en todo el mundo para desarrollar sistemas de evaluación del desempeño con el uso de indicadores, hasta el punto que resulta prácticamente imposible encontrar un artículo o trabajo sobre este asunto que no referencie esta obra. Por ello, debe tomarse como un punto de partida más que uno de llegada. El manual proporcionará los fundamentos de la evaluación del desempeño y las claves para acometer la misma con éxito en un servicio de abastecimiento de agua. Para los más experimentados, este manual siempre será una obra de referencia a la que volver cuando surjan dudas.

Integrated River Basin Governance Integrated River Basin Governance

ISBN: 9781843390886

eISBN: 9781780402970

Integrated River Basin Governance - Learning from International Experience is designed to help practitioners implement integrated approaches to river basin management. (IRBM). It aims to help the coming generation of senior university students learn how to design IRBM and it provides current researchers and the broader water community with a resource on river basin management.

Drawing on both past and present river basin and valley scale catchment management examples from around the world, the book develops an integration framework for river basin management. Grounded in the theory and literature of natural resources management and planning, the thrust of the book is to assist policy and planning, rather than extend knowledge of hydrology, biophysical modelling or aquatic ecology. Providing a classification of river basin organizations and their use, the book also covers fundamental issues related to implementation: - decision-making - institutions and organizations - information management - participation and awareness - legal and economic issues - integration and coordination processes - building human capacity. Integrated River Basin Governance focuses on the social, economic, organizational and institutional arrangements of river basin management. Methods are outlined for implementing strategic and regional approaches to river basin management, noting the importance of context and other key elements which have been shown to impede success. The book includes a range of tools for river basin governance methods, derived from real life experiences in both developed and developing countries. The successes and failures of river basin management are discussed, and lessons learned from both are presented.
