Water resources and land use management

Solving water and environmental problems often requires integration of various aspects such as conjunctive use of groundwater and surface water, water quantity and quality, irrigation water demand, water use conflicts, environmental and socioeconomic aspects, and integration of the natural systems into political and institutional systems.

The particular advantage to our customers is cutting-edge expertise coupled with state-of the-art decision support tools to assist in the policy analysis and strategic planning of water and environmental resources.

DHI has achieved a leading position within the field of integrated management of land and water resources. Furthermore, we have contributed to defining IWRM approaches and pioneered their application through support to national planning processes. Also DHI hosts a number of international knowledge centres – run in cooperation with UNEP, WHO, Danish Water Forum and Global Water Partnership – dedicated to working towards integrated management of water, environmental and coastal resources.
