Metropolitan water use conflicts in Asia and the Pacific by James E Nickum( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 2019 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Asia is the least urbanized continent, it contains half of the world's megacities and many of the world's fastest-growing economies. Urban growth is already stressing local water supplies and causing intense conflict among water users--between haves and have-nots in urban areas as well as between farmers and fishers outside the cities. In addition, concern is growing over the depletion and degradation of water sources and over the impact of water policies and patterns of water use on the natural environment. From the perspective of the maturing metropolitan water economy, the contributors to this volume consider the problems of urban water management in the region. They focus on the institutional and policy dimensions of conflict and seek to provide a range of viable options for reducing the growing frictions among water users. Eight specific case studies of urban areas in Asia and the Pacific span a wide range of economic levels of development, physical settings, and hydrological conditions. The book will be of interest to scholars and policymakers concerned with issues of water and environmental policy, urban management, and resource conflict in general

Transboundary water cooperation : principles, practice and prospects for China and its neighbours by Patricia Wouters( Book )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"China and its neighbours face a series of water security issues, in which international law plays a vital role. Paramount to both policymakers and researchers in the field of water law, the current status of transboundary water cooperation schemes and how these operate in China is of global significance. Grounded in international experience, this comprehensive volume provides readers with an up-to-date overview of current international transboundary water resource sharing policies and practices, including detailed case studies at both domestic and international levels. The authors discuss existing international laws, treaties, and principles that may stimulate transboundary water cooperation and dialogue, and then analyse a number of international experiences with treaties in North America, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia. They take stock of China⁰́₉s water resource issues, legal practices and options, examine case studies of China⁰́₉s southern shared rivers, and explore some innovative approaches to cooperative management of shared waters within China. The articles in this book were originally published in the journal Water International"--Publisher's website

The water legacies of conventional mining( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The impact of mining is too big to ignore in a world of oversubscribed water. This is true of conventional mining as much as ́-- or even more than ́-- hydraulic fracturing (fracking). The legacy issues of such mining on water have not been fully appreciated, especially the irretrievable effects mining has had on communities and ecosystems around the world through its impact on water. Yet this is not an ́ 'us-or-theḿ'; problem: the wealth, influence and technical knowledge of mining interests can and must be part of the solution. All of the contributions to this volume either consider the deficiencies of existing governance structures and the need for better ones, or explore the use of new techniques to identify and evaluate social and environmental impacts. The chapters in this book were originally published in the journal Water International."--Provided by publisher
