Edited by Barbara Rose Johnston, Lisa Hiwasaki, Irene Klaver, Ameyali Ramos Castillo, Veronica Strang

Description

Co-published with UNESCOA product of the UNESCO-IHP project on Water and Cultural Diversity, this book represents an effort to examine the complex role water plays as a force in sustaining, maintaining, and threatening the viability of culturally diverse peoples.

It is argued that water is a fundamental human need, a human right, and a core sustaining element in biodiversity and cultural diversity.

The core concepts utilized in this book draw upon a larger trend in sustainability science, a recognition of the synergism and analytical potential in utilizing a coupled biological and social systems analysis, as the functioning viability of nature is both sustained and threatened by humans.
