Abstract
"Ecosystems are living parts of the physical environment, building up the life support system for all living creatures. This makes human-induced ecosystem destruction all the more hazardous for those living today and, especially, for the coming generations. Since water is the 'bloodstream' of the biosphere, good water management can help protect ecosystems. In this article, SIWI Professor Malin Falkenmark looks at where we are in terms of entering ecosystem protection into Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM)."
