Freshwater - Outlook 2020 (Switzerland)
Swiss water policy has been developing and promoting the concept of ’integral water management‘, with the catchment area as management and planning space. The ’Guiding Principles for Swiss Water Courses‘ outline specific measures to be adopted by cantonal, regional and local authorities and provide showcase examples of good practice. The emphasis is on three development goals: adequate space, adequate water flows and adequate water quality (SAEFL/FOWG, 2003).
