Developing the Circular Water Economy

Developing the Circular Water Economy

Author: Robert C. Brears Format: Hardback Release Date: 09/12/2019

This book presents new research on policy innovations that promote the development of the circular water economy. In contrast to the linear economy, the circular water economy promotes the reduction of water consumption, reuse of water, and recovery of resources from wastewater to not only increase resilience to climate change but also to reduce greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the provision of water and wastewater-related services. Providing a series of in-depth case studies of important locations in differing climates around the globe that have implemented a variety of policy innovations to develop the circular water economy, this book is a valuable resource for water and resource conservation managers, policymakers, international companies and organisations interested in the circular economy, environmental NGOs, researchers, as well as graduate and undergraduate students. * Systematically reviews policy innovations to develop the circular water economy * Illustrates how leading locations from around the world have developed the circular water economy to increase resilience to climate change while reducing emissions * Provides 'best practices' for other locations around the world aiming to implement the circular water economy

Mining and the Law in Africa Exploring the social and environmental impacts

Mining and the Law in Africa Exploring the social and environmental impacts

Author: Victoria R. Nalule Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/12/2019

The mining sector has been an integral part of economic development in many African countries. Although minerals have been exploited for decades in these countries, the benefits have not always been as visible. This has necessitated reforms including nationalisation of mining activities in the distant past; and currently legal and regulatory reforms. This book gives an insight of these reforms and with reference to the fieldwork research undertaken by the author in some African countries, the book highlights the social and environmental impacts of mining activities in Africa. The central question of the book is, why the mining laws have worked in some countries but not others and what can be done to ensure that these laws are effective? Consequently, the book analyses the legal reforms made in the sector and highlights both the challenges and the opportunities for foreign investors as well as the African governments and local communities. The book will be of great interest to researchers and students in Energy and Geography related fields, as well as to practitioners and policy makers.
