More Information
This authoritative Encyclopedia provides an innovative approach to theory, reviews, applications and examples relevant to the basic concepts of water science and water management issues in order to facilitate better interdisciplinary cooperation.

In light of the broadening field and study of water management, the expert contributors set the basis for a holistic approach to water science by examining the various technical, cross-disciplinary, socio-economic and policy extents. Using global case studies, elaborated in large European and global research and innovation projects, they illustrate how different approaches to modern water management issues can stem the flow of ongoing climate change and ecosystem collapse challenges to improve future decision-making and policies.

Providing concise summaries and knowledge from both a theoretical and an applied viewpoint, this Encyclopedia will be an invaluable resource for scholars, students, and practitioners of water research policy and governance, agricultural and environmental economics, biodiversity, technology, and marine studies.

Key Features:

• With over 85 entries written by experts in the field
• Uses clear and concise terminology for broader audience interest
• Uses case studies to illustrate water management issues and approaches
• Provides concise summaries of the most relevant accumulated knowledge on the subjects explored
• Illustrates examples to give useful context and background information on how experts approach various water related issues
