Integrated Water Resources Management
Integrated water resources management and high standards of water protection based on the ecosystem approach are necessities in Finland, where water bodies are highly vulnerable to environmental changes. Water management is based on long-term planning
and targets, and involves wide-ranging co-operation with many different stakeholders. The knowledge base for planning has been established through intensive research and monitoring. Many special research tools such as mathematical models and geographical
information systems have been developed in Finland.
