Contents:
Rethinking development paradigms for the water sector / Cecilia Tortajada -- Global and local agendas in water management : from vision to action / Odeh Al-Jayyousi -- Balancing between the eternal yesterday and the eternal tomorrow : economic globalization, water and equity / Naser Faruqui -- Managing rain for the future / Johan Rockstr�om -- Recycling and reuse of 'derivative water' under conditions of scarcity and competition / Christopher A. Scott -- Rethinking groundwater management / Karin E. Kemper -- Water rights and their management : a comparative country study and its implication for China / Dajun Shen -- The present and future of transboundary water management / Aaron T. Wolf -- Forgetting political boundaries in identifying water development potentials in the basin-wide approach : the Ganges-Bhahmaputra-Meghna issues / Zahir Uddin Ahmad -- Let's pump money in the water sector! / Caroline M. Figu�eres -- Conclusion : The way forward / Caroline M. Figu�eres, Johan Rockstr�om and Cecilia Tortajada.
Summary: Annotation Renewable blue water flows will very soon be insufficient to meet the growing demands of the industrial, agricultural and domestic sectors. Within a generation, the proportion of the world's population facing acute water stress could be as high as 50 per cent, because of increased pollution, population growth, urbanization, economic growth and, above all, because of poor management practices. The awareness of this crisis is growing and with it the realization that new approaches to water management are desperately needed. This book will provide the resources to create them. In it, many of the most successful and innovative managers today explain what can be achieved and how to improve the conservation of water, its distribution and its quality.
