This World Bank report on the protection of environmental flow conditions in rivers, lakes and other waterways provides policymakers and researchers with an analysis of the effects of climate change, new water development projects and the protection of groundwater resources. Hirji (water resources specialist, The World Bank) and Davis (senior science advisor, Australian National Water Commission) examine the decision-making processes and development assistance polices of various programs before presenting case studies that assess the lessons learned from these policies, basin plans and projects. Appendices include environmental flow policies from international development organizations and NGOs, a copy of the Brisbane Declaration and infrastructure design features for environmental flows from dams.
