  • drainage, drain blocking and rotational heather burning. Relatively little is known about the environmental effects of rotational heather burning compared with drainage and drain-blocking management, and for all three of these management techniques
  • Peatlands are important ecosystems for carbon (C) storage, provision of water resources and biodiversity. This paper reviews the hydrological, physicochemical and ecological effects of 3 widespread UK peatland management practices, namely artificial

  • This paper suggests methods for the sustainable operation of water resource use and protection. Environmental flows (EF) for rivers are used to illustrate some of the opportunities and problems inherent in managing rivers sustainably. In particular
  • , there is a requirement for agreeing on clear and measurable environmental objectives for which a modified flow regime can be set. Knowledge from a number of different disciplines, including hydrology, ecology, hydraulics, geomorphology, water quality and socio-economics
  • has to be integrated to provide holistic levels of understanding if sustainable management is to be achieved. Case studies from South African river research over the past 20 years are used to illustrate the policies, methods, impediments and successes
  • of sustainable river management. In particular, a recognition of complexity and change, both in ecosystems and in human thinking and behaviour, is emphasized.

  • In the May Zeg-Zeg catchment in Tigray, north Ethiopia, integrated catchment management has been implemented since 2004 : stone bunds were built in the whole catchment, vegetation was allowed to re-grow on steep slopes and other marginal land
  • , stubble grazing abandoned, and check dams built in gullies. Land-use and management were mapped and analysed for 2000 and 2006, whereby particular attention was given to the quantification of changes in soil loss due to the abandonment of stubble grazing
  • . Sediment yield was also measured at the catchment's outlet. This diachronic comparison of sediment budgets revealed that integrated catchment management is the way to combat land degradation in Tigray and other tropical mountains.
