Many countries in the world have made great efforts, to remedy the water shortage, by providing financial and technical backing, for water desalination, treatment of wastewater and improved management and conservation techniques. Water ministries, universities and research centres have supported scientific research, and applied the most recent technologies, in search of new and alternative water supplies. Laws have been promulgated, economic and public relation campaigns developed, to promote and encourage the practice of efficient water use and the conservation of this scarce commodity. This book covers water resources and management and provides a new vision of water resources management, water conservation and legislations, water law, and modern techniques of water resources investigation.

This paper reviews literature on the Nile basin co-operation and issues related to this process, focusing on more recent publications. The literature on utilization and management of the Nile waters related to basin-wide cooperation efforts has been growing fast during the last decade. This review discusses and covers a wide range of issues, which include: debate on water scarcity and its potential consequences in general, and its implications for the Nile basin countries in particular; legal aspects of utilization of the Nile waters focusing on the UN Watercourse Convention of 1997; conflicts and major attempts at cooperation; divergent views and interests of the basin countries; and challenges and prospects of the recent basin-wide cooperation.

Water is one of the most important and potentially explosive issues in modern Middle East politics. It is an issue arguably far more significant to the region than oil. It has dogged relations between Middle East societies for centuries if not millennia and will continue to do so long after oil has ceased to hold sway. The editors of this book have brought together an impressive team of experts to examine all aspects of the water question. These include international law, shari'a, customs and water rights, international politics, the role of the World Bank, water management, the environment and pollution, commercial issues and investment in water, engineering and technology.

As urban growth outstrips water supplies, how can the global challenge of providing "liquid gold" be met? Mixing history and policy analysis, Erie tells the story of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD)--one of the world's largestand most important public water agencies--and its role in building the world's eighth largest economy in a semi-desert. No tawdry tale of secret backroom conspiracies--as depicted in the famed film Chinatown--this telling concerns an unheralded regional institution, its entrepreneurial public leadership, and pioneering policymaking. Using untapped primary sources, the author re-examines this great regional experiment from its 1920s-era origins, through the Colorado River Aqueduct and State Water Projects, to today's daunting mission of drought management, water quality, environmental stewardship, and supply security. He concludes by considering MWD's Integrated Resources Plan as a global model for water-resources planning and management, water supply reliability, affordability, and environmental sustainability.--From publisher description.
