  2. 2. Scenarios for Flood Risk Management Strategies Integration in Mozambique A backcasting approach for the case of the Limpopo River Basin

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Department of Computer and Systems Sciences, Stockholm University

    Författare :Avelino Isaias Mondlhane; Oliver Popov; Adiel Teixeira de Almeida; [2018]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Flood risk management strategies; scenario planning; backcasting; MCDA; risk; hazards; exposure; vulnerability; data- och systemvetenskap; Computer and Systems Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Flood risk management strategic planning with long-term perspectives is a complex problem, for which the solution requires a multidisciplinary and multi-paradigm approach. A significant dimension of this complexity arises from the need to include or add a participatory mode to the solution process, which amounts to a requirement that all stakeholders, ranging from decision makers to experts and beneficiaries, be involved in the decision making.

    Sammanfattning : The growing pressure on the world‘s fresh water resources is enforced by population growth that leads to conflicts between demands for different purposes. A main concern on water use is the conflict between the environment and other purposes like hydropower, irrigation for agriculture and domestic and industry water supply, where total flows are diverted without releasing water for ecological conservation.
