    Abstract

    Water is an important natural resource that has affected both the development and the destruction of societies since ancient times (Wittfogel, 1957; Postel, 1999). Modern societies are undergoing change on a number of fronts and thus the associated skills, knowledge and approaches for managing this vital resource are also changing. As such, water management is becoming an increasingly challenging endeavour.
