Like other natural resources, today water is an important “economic” good. In particular, in most industrialised countries, the increase in water consumption, generated by economic development, has given rise to very strong competition among areas, uses, users, present and future generations over the access to the resource. It has thus become urgent to draw up planning methodologies with the aim of rationalising the management of the water sector. This article analyses the water resource planning in the Italian experience from a theoretical and historical perspective, highlighting the link between principles and practical problems.
