Although Brazil has the largest freshwater reserve in the world, it still faces water stress situations, especially in metropolitan regions, requiring an efficient management system for its water resources. Thus, analyzing the Strategic Planning (SP) of a Hydrographic Basin Committee (CBH) and its actions, from the perspective of the sustainability dimensions – the economic, social and environmental – can be useful for the proposition of a Knowledge Management System (KMS), so that other existing basin plans in Brazil and abroad can make use of the proposed KMS to assist the decision-making process in the management of water resources. Currently the studies on environmental dynamics focus mainly on the investigation of one or two environmental dimensions. For example, the study of the environmental, socio-cultural or ecosystemic problems of a productive activity, rather than of the whole environment, its relations and interactions. Therefore, this partial look does not allow observing all the environmental edges of a productive activity, its implications, which are responsible for environmental deterioration, and possibilities of recovery. Consequently, the opportunity to present the integral approaches to the study of water, which analyse all the environmental dimensions involved in a productive activity, its relations and interactions, both internal and external. The integral approaches selected for the study of water are: Ecosystem – Culture employed in Colombia and the Water, Energy and Food Security Nexus implemented in Peru.
