Description

The third set in the successful History of Water Series focuses on the most pressing global water issues: urbanisation, international water law, food security and climate change. As more and more of the world population live in urban environments what effect will this have on our capacity to meet growing water demands? And as demand for water increases, and climate change threatens the water security of already water scarce regions, how can we devise systems of water sharing and transboundary water governance that will meet the challenges presented by increased competition for our most precious natural resource? The volumes in Series III of the pioneering History of Water Series present an original and multidisciplinary perspective, by many of the leading water experts of the day, on the vital water issues now challenging the planet.
