Translated title of the contribution: Summary of strategic issues of water management in Hungary

Abstract

The objective of the research made in the framework of the Strategic Programme of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences was the analysis of the major strategic questions of Hungarian water management. This last study makes an attempt to synthesise the main conclusions in the form of thesis-like findings, for the various themes (climate change, water management, water quality management, ecology and nature conservation, flood control, "areal" water management, and urban water management). The study deals with some of the problems of the implementation of the principles of integrated water management, looking onto the costs involved in various future development strategies. On the basis of these considerations it can be stated that there is an urgent need today for a much more detailed strategic analysis, than that presented here. This should be followed by a methodical and organised implementation based on a recursive (feed-back type) approach, as it is done in many developed countries in our era. This approach is justified, among others, by the economic transition phase of this country, which results in substantial conceptual changes in many fields (such as the household water management and the flood-control). Other justification of the change of conceptual approach include: The not yet fully explored impact of the integration process with the EU on water management, the dominating role of extra-Hungarian impacts originating from the Danube and Tisza river catchments. The extreme hydrological regime of the Tisza river, which is certainly not independent of the climate changes. The new possibilities crated by the future changes of the land use. The extremely high costs of the implementation of future tasks, and the enormous saving options that could be achieved by "clever" tools and solutions, along with an appropriate scheduling of actions. Even more important is the development of the institutional system. Integrated water management cannot be implemented without the above outlined overall planning procedure.
