This paper concerns applications of advanced techniques of variational analysis and generalized differentiation to problems of semi-infinite and infinite programming with feasible solution sets defined by parameterized systems of infinitely many linear inequalities of the type intensively studied in the preceding development [Cánovas et al., SIAM J. Optim., 20 (2009), pp. 1504-1526 from the viewpoint of robust Lipschitzian stability. The main results establish necessary optimality conditions

The results obtained are new in both smooth and nonsmooth settings of semi-infinite and infinite programming. We illustrate our model and results by considering a practically meaningful model of water resource optimization via systems of reservoirs.
