Abstract

The essence of sustainable freshwater resources management is balancing freshwater supplies with demands and uses in a manner that ensures water availability (quantity and quality) for the present and the future. Climate variability and change may affect both sides of the balance, and thus add to the challenges (IPCC, 2014).
