Classification of groundwater vulnerability is presented as a typical problem that has to be analyzed in the framework of regional development or contingency planning. Currently various conceptual model approaches enable the quantification on one hand of environmental vulnerability, risk, or on the other hand e.g. potential for exploitation of environmental commodities like groundwater, forest or mineral resources.
