The Management of Water Resources series

Series editor: Charles W. Howe, University of Colorado, Boulder, US

Water resources today command broad regional, national and international attention. Water plays a crucial role in economic development, environmental management and the general quality of life in all parts of the world. International bodies are currently addressing pervasive water problems, including the policing of international rivers, the resolution of increasing conflict over limited supplies, the role of dams in water management, etc. This series of five books summarizes the state of knowledge of economics and management practices in five dimensions of water resources: climate change and its potential impact on water systems; the role of water in economic development; the impacts of irrigated agriculture on the environment and related policy issues; the economics of industrial water use; and conflict prevention and resolution in water systems.
