dc.description.abstract "Dam planners and operators often have to consider a huge number of factors and conflicting objectives. This makes decision making extremely difficult. In such situations, decision support systems (DSS) have an important role to play. Over the years, many different DSSs have been developed for dam planning and operation. This report presents a review of the different types of DSS and their application in water resource management. Although some information and examples have been obtained from elsewhere, the main focus is Africa. The report is not a comprehensive compendium on DSS application in dam planning and operation, but rather, it provides an overview and framework for understanding issues pertaining to decision-making in relation to large dams in Africa." en_US
