Coastal reservoirs are viewed in many regions of the world as an emerging concept of storing fresh water when the river basin is in flood. Similar reservoirs (or impoundments) can be used to generate tidal renewable energy and/or provide the catalysis for urban regeneration. Constructed near the coast in natural river basins, these reservoirs have a smaller environmental footprint and are less obstructive than inland dams. Written by an international group of Civil, Environmental, and Geotechnical Engineers, Sustainable Water Resource Development using Coastal Reservoirs discusses the latest research and breakthroughs in their use, while offering expert advice into their sustainable design and construction. The perfect reference for researchers exploring the feasibility of this emerging technology or experienced professionals who wish to implement this technology as a water scarcity solution or a tidal renewable energy source or for urban regeneration, Sustainable Water Resource Development using Coastal Reservoirs provides an expert resource to the design, construction and use of coastal reservoirs. The reference begins with a brief but readable examination of water quantity, quality design and geotechnical considerations. The book includes international case studies to clearly illustrate the various uses, design, planning, construction, and operation methods. These case studies include projects such as: Afsluitdijk in the IJsselmeer, (Netherlands), Zuiderzee (Netherlands), Thanneermukkom Bund (India), Sihwa (South Korea), Saemangeum, (South Korea), Chenhang (China), Plover Cove (China), and Marina Barrage (Singapore). Explores the feasibility/design implications for Coastal Reservoirs based on estimation of runoff, detailed assessment of water demand and estimation of water quality Provides design schemes/procedures for the construction and operation of coastal reservoirs Includes case studies to illustrate the design, planning, construction and operations of coastal reservoirs from around the world

This report is the result of a joint project of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the World Bank, the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) and the World Conservation Union (Regional Office for Southern Africa) which investigated the threats to precious water resources in southern Africa, and to the environment that sustains them. The full colour, glossy report was intended as a SADC contribution to the United Nations summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg in 2002, and to the New Partnership for Africa's Development. The report provides a framework for the sustainable management of water resources, and presents solutions for long-term protection and appropriate utilisation of water in the counties of the region ? the DRC, Angola, Tanzania, Zambia, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia, Botswana, Swaziland, Lesotho and South Africa. Some key messages that pervade the report are: firstly that the effective and sustainable utilisation and management of water resources are essential prerequisites for sustaining all forms of life and livelihoods, and for fostering overall socio-economic development and poverty reduction in the region; and that moreover, sustainable water resources management must be balanced between the short-term needs of the people and their human development, and the protection of the natural resource base and environment.
