Global Issues in Water Policy

Description

Policy work in the water sector has grown tremendously over the past two decades, following the Rio Declaration of 1992. The existing volume of water-related literature is becoming dominant in professional outlets, including books and journals. Because the field of water resources is interdisciplinary in nature, covering physical, economic, institutional, legal, environmental, social and political aspects, this diversification leads in many cases to partial treatment of the water issues, or incomplete analysis of the various issues at stake. Therefore, treating a whole host of a country’s water resources issues in one set of pages will be a significant contribution to scholars, students, and other interested public. This book series is expected to address both the current practice of fragmented treatment of water policy analyses, and the need to have water policy being communicated to all interested parties in an integrated manner but in a non-technical language. The purpose of this book series is to make existing knowledge and experience in water policy accessible to a wider audience that has a strong stake and interest in water resources. The series will consist of books that address issues in water policy in specific countries, covering both the generic and specific issues within a common and pre-designed framework.
