Abstract

Environmentally sound planning should involve efforts to attain harmonious equilibrium between land use and water resources, seeing the river basin as a functional ecosystem, characterized by direct feedbacks from human actions. The author summarizes some of the recent development but concludes that, unfortunately, numerous obstacles will delay the process: poor conceptual framework, undeveloped planning methodology, non-congruence between natural and administrative borderlines, and use oriented legislation that counteracts a coordinated land and water development and conservation in its ignorance of basic natural laws.
