In the GDR more than two-thirds of the total output of primary energy is based on lignite extracted exclusively by strip-mining. Mining results in significant environmental and resource use conflicts between different users in such regions. This paper describes the concept of a study on the analysis of Regional Water Policies in Open-Cast Mining Areas in collaboration with institutes in the GDR. The study is directed at the development and implementation of methods and models for analyzing the use of water resources and environmental problems in open-cast mining areas.

The study is one of a network of national studies concerned with environmental and resource policies carried out in several National Member Organization (NMO) countries within the IIASA Program "Institutions and Environmental Policies." Based on the problem definition the research topics are characterized, a few methodological approaches outlined and the working plan presented.
