There is a need for methods to assess ecological impacts of flow management at a range of scales so that appropriate regional management can be implemented, which could be realized by analyzing environmental flow as a key indicator. Hence, this PhD thesis will use multi-criteria optimization to identify and assess the relationships and trade-offs among land and water use, e-flow requirements, and related ecosystem services on local to regional scales. As a main result the project will provide a scale specific framework to evaluate scale-specific e-flow and related ecosystem services to provide related sustainable management strategies.

​This PhD thesis aims to develop methods and approaches that differentiate the impact of these drivers to solve related land use conflicts, and assist integrated land and water management with the focus on environmental flow (at the meso-scale).
