CEEP embraces a “soft path” to issues of water resources and ecosystems. It seeks to move beyond reliance upon supply-side approaches such as dams, reservoirs, and groundwater supply expansion, by focusing on conservation and the sharing of best management practices of water resources. CEEP incorporates concerns of social equity, conflict management, stream flow impacts and ecosystem sustainability in its research.
Society is considered to practice a water sustainability ethic when it meets the needs of existing and future populations equitably while simultaneously ensuring that habitats and ecosystems are protected. “Soft path” water strategies can create benefits for the environment, equity (including improved public health) and a sustainable economy (E3).
