Short summary
Water management is challenged by socio-hydrological change and forced to make decisions under uncertainty. E.g. reservoir management aiming at flood mitigation copes with various aspects of uncertainty. The proposed framework condenses these aspects under a risk based approach and provides an overview of neuralgic points of uncertainty and fields of action and uncertainty reduction. The framework enables practitioners to consistently integrate uncertainties in their decision-making processes.
