Annotation:
This article discusses integrated catchment management (ICM) as an application of the concept of sustainable development for aquatic ecosystems. ICM aims at developing, maintaining, and restoring the water system to reach the quality objectives of multifunctional use for the present generation without compromising the uses for future generations. The author concludes that the quality objectives should be based on sufficient ecosystem knowledge and that ICM demands a solid and workable framework built on the integration of knowledge and organizational integration which are supported by statutory rules and (international) regulations. Specific examples of ICM goals in Flanders are presented.
