World Water Actions Making Water Flow for All

by Francois Guerquin, Tarek, PhD, PE Ahmed, Mi Hua, Tetsuya Ikeda

World Water Actions Making Water Flow for All Synopsis

This text is divided into three parts. Part I focuses on the need for management to assess the challenges of water scarcity and plan changes based on proper valuation and financial instruments, international co-operation and efficient use. Part II analyses the problems of water scarcity and the available solutions in each main sector: water supply and sanitation, energy, health, agriculture, ecosystems and biodiversity. Part III assesses the state of the debate following the third World Water Forum and sets out the priorities for action, including increased investment, institutional reform and capacity building in the water sector. A free CD-ROM with extensive case studies and statistical data accompanies this text.

World Water Actions Making Water Flow for All Press Reviews

'World Water Actions presents applied and concrete answers to many of the issues identified by the United Nations through its World Water Assessment Programme, and therefore inspires us all as water practitioners.' Andras Szollosi-Nagy, Deputy Assistant Director-General, Natural Sciences, and Secretary, International Hydrological Programme, UNESCO 'Water facts and figures are essential, but to understand why we are in crisis today, it is imperative to go beyond statistical data into both the water management perspective and the analysis of community-level experience. This important study looks at all these levels - and more.' Margaret Catley-Carson, Chair, Global Water Partnership 'World Water Actions provides a review of over 3,000 initiatives in every field of water management and affecting all stakeholders. It clearly demonstrates that the World Water Movement envisioned by the World Water Commission is well underway.' Ismail Serageldin, Chairman, World Commission for Water in the 21st Century 'A book to recommend to decision makers.' Sherkin Comment
