Summary:Integrated urban water management relies on data allowing managers to
analyze, understand and predict the behavior of the individual water
cycle components and their interactions. The concomitant monitoring
of the complex of urban water system elements makes it possible to
grasp the entirety of relations among the various components of the
urban water cycle and so develop a holistic approach to solving urban
water problems. This publication is geared towards improving
integrated urban water management by providing guidance on the
collection, validation, storage, assessment and utilization of the
relevant data.--Publisher's description.
