Methodological Approach to Policies of Industry in Sustainable Development and Water Resources Protection

 • Developing a method for assessing water shortage based on the integral index of water resources
• Applying the index that combines two indicators. Primarily, the wastewater discharge indicator characterizes the quality of water resources. Secondly, the water use indicator characterizes the quantity of water resources. The integral indicator can be used in planning industrial activities to achieve sustainable development
• Exploring the contribution of the industry to the water shortage in a territory
• Assessing quantitative and qualitative shortage of water resources in a territory affected by a large mining enterprise in the northeast of Perm Krai
