1 Problems and opportunities of integrated basin management in mountains Carmen de Jong The Mountain Institute, University of Savoy France

2 5th World Water Forum Suggestions for possible contribution to RIOB session on River Basin Management and Transboundary Cooperation Problems and Opportunities of Integrated Basin Management in Mountains Organisers: Mountain Institut (Carmen de Jong) Gazi University (Ibrahim Gurer) and others

3 Problems and Opportunities of Integrated Basin Management in Mountains AIMS Awareness raising for climate and anthropogenic induced catchment problems in the Alps (moving away from perception of whole catchment to subcatchment scale) Development of pan-alpine Stakeholder Interaction Forum (moving through local to national and alpine scale) Monitoring and modelling, development of Early Warning System against Water Scarcity, suggestions for water management strategies

4 Useful background experience for preparing session - Special Session Water in Mountains in September 2008 at WWC in Montpellier - Interreg Alpine Space project Alp-Water-Scarce (Water Management Strategies against Water Scarcity in the Alps) with 17 partners

5 Interreg Alpine Space Alp-Water-Scarce Water management strategies against water scarcity in the Alps

6 Water problems in mountains?

8 Changing climatic pressures Zermatt in 1890 Lopé 1884

9 Artificial snow for nordic skiing Terre Sauvage 2008

10 Snow making is water intensive 4700 m 3 / ha

11 Changing anthropogenic pressures Zermatt, Petit Cervin: model Zermatt, Petit Cervin Plans for tourist platform and pressurised hotel (117 m in height, extension up to 4000m)

12 Anthropogenic and climatological pressures on mountain catchments Will the upper anthropogenic limits be constrained by altitude, or not? de Jong et al 2008

13 Seasonal Water Consumption for Tourism drinking water (m 3 ) month Les Chapelles St. Martin de Belleville Albertville Bourg St. Maurice de Jong et al 2008 a

14 Spatial Water Consumption for Tourism 200 km km 2 - sub catchment of 200 km 2 - relative winter discharge of 10 L/s/km 2 - tourist density of 300 beds/km 2 - main catchment of 1600 km 2 - relative winter discharge of 10 L/s/km 2 - tourist density of 190 beds/km 2

18 CONCLUSIONS - AlpWaterScarce will intensify long term, observational networks and integrate soft (or qualitative) stakeholder knowledge - integrate short term, in situ (but significant) water abstraction such as for snow production or tourism in monitoring and modelling approaches - develop adaptation and mitigation strategies (drought resistance crops) - create Early Warning Systems at sub-catchment scale, integrating economical and hydrological requirements - develop new mountain water regulations together with Alpine Convention

19 CHALLENGE Help to develop an interdisciplinary and intersectorial problem consciousness and acceptance
