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.
