Abstract

In response to the challenges of sustainable development, this paper describes the formulation and application of a framework of catchment-level water resource use and management indicators designed to integrate environmental, economic, and social aspects of sustainability. The framework of 9 indicators was applied to the River Clyde catchment in Scotland, using existing secondary data and in a manner that recognized local thresholds and standards, where appropriate. Findings suggested a mixed and relatively complex situation, with encouraging results for water quality and supply
